Choc Banana Cupcakes made with Passion

I know I said I wouldn’t make any cake for a while, but these cupcakes were made for D’s birthday. This idea came from having to use up some of the divine passionfruit cream from my passionfruit yoyos recipe. It’s a combination of chocolate chip and banana cupcakes with that delectable fruity cream on top, and it’s a total winner.
