Yesterday I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Just because I wanted to. Isn’t that awesome? What’s more awesome is that I’m actually blogging about the day after and not next month! One step forward in beating the procrastination that tends to run my life! I’m excited, can you tell? Haha, anyway, I made used this Devil’s Food Cake recipe from BHG to make these cupcakes (I used only the cake recipe, not the glaze or frosting).
It was the first time I had tried it and they are pretty good. I think they could use more chocolate or something but the cake is nice and light and fluffy. And they definately satisfied my craving for cake. And, just so you know, I used butter instead of shortening because I didn’t have shortening but it didn’t give me any problems.
Doesn’t that cake look perfect? They are very yummy and I will certainly make them again but I will probably add in more cocoa and maybe take out the cinnamon. I topped them with this Vanilla-Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting, opting to add in the cocoa powder, of course. I’ve made this frosting before and it was pretty good. This time I added more cocoa powder and then added an extra tablespoon of milk. Next time, I won’t add the third tablespoon of milk because it was too soft (but still good). It’s a pretty sweet frosting but that works here.
These were a very yummy treat and were just what I needed to satisfy my craving for cake. My little sisters really liked them too and I’m sure there won’t be any left by the end of the weekend. If you’ve got a craving for chocolate cake, try out these recipes this weekend and let me know what you think. Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
