Mexican Hot Chocolate "Cup" Cakes with Cocoa Whipped Cream

Like Mexican hot chocolate, these "cup" cakes are flavored with spicy cinnamon and bitter cocoa powder, as well as ancho chile pepper. The cakes are baked and served in coffee cups, and have a fudgy hot chocolate layer at the bottom of the cup.
