Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes

All ready to go to the school for Halloween Party! I batch down 1 more to go.
The great cupcakes unfrosted!

I love cupcakes. They are the perfect portion control piece of cake. You can also do so many different things with them! They usually always turn out great and all you have to frost is the top. I always have great intentions when making full size cakes but they never turn out very pretty. I even failed cake decorating 101 that I took several years ago. Clara of I Heart Food For Thought chose this recipe for Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes. This was a very simple cake batter with the addition of melted chocolate and buttermilk. I also added 1 T of cooled coffee to my batter. I sampled some of the cake batter. It was wonderful and tasted almost like fluffy frosting. I am taking these to my sons class for a Halloween party. The finished product picture will come after the kids decorate them. I did not fill these with nutella or fluff but left them plain. Next time I will be more creative and make some amazing kind of filling : ) I bought all kinds of Halloween treats to decorate these with from Candy Corns to Sprinkles. I can't wait to see how the kids do.

man you are on the ball! I like that cupcake holder you have. I see that Halloween stitchery in that picture. Looks like you did good. I love homemade decorations and yeah some store bought ones but the ones you make are priceless.

have fun at the party.

What are the kids going to be for Halloween?

These look great!! I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com
