Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool 10 minutes; remove the mold, and let cool completely.
To prepare the chocolate coating, Cook the cream in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, just until it begins to steam (do not boil); and remove from heat. Placed the chocolate in a glass container. Little by little, add the hot cream to chocolate, beating with a whisk until the chocolate is melted and mixture is well blended. The mass thickens as it cools. You will have about 2 cups of chocolate coating.
Fill each cupcake with chocolate topping if desired, instead of putting it on top. If you prefer it with chocolate inside, you will have to do so:
To fill cupcakes, insert the end of a wooden spoon or stem in the center of the cupcake to make a hole. Fill a plastic bag to freeze with filling or frosting. Use kitchen shears or scissors to cut about ½ centimeter of one corner of bag; Insert bag in the hole of the magdalena. Tighten gently until filling reaches to the top of each Peppermint cupcake.
To prepare the Mint Glaze, beat first 5 ingredients at speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating speed low until blended. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes or until creamy. You'll make 3 cups Mint icing. Put on the top of each of mint cupcake.
