Banana Cupcakes with chocolate icing

At the beginning this was supposed to be a banana cupcake with chocolate buttercream. I was absent-minded and I don’t know what I did but at the end I had a chocolate ganache and not a buttercream even if I put the butter. (Did I put it? I am sure I did). I was disappointed with myself but the more I am eating them, the more I like them!
