      I'm not much of a cake baker, but have been wanting to try cupcakes and decorating for some time. Well, these were so moist and chocolaty and pretty easy to mix up. And the frosting, it's so creamy and easy - I loved it. I did add 1 tablespoon of expresso powder and I love it in chocolate, and when mixing the batter looked really thin to me so added about 1/4cup of flour. It made a LOT of cupcakes, so I did 12 regular size and then the rest in mini cupcakes for DH to take to work. My biggest compliment came from DH who doesn't care for sweets when he asked for "just one more" and then wanted to know WHY I was sending them to work? Told him because they are so good, we'd eat them all and my waist line can't handle it!! Lovely little cakes that I'll be repeating. My decorating still needs a long way to go - but the taste couldn't be better. Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game 2012

      AMAZING! I do believe this is the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted! I had leftover buttermilk & a birthday party where chocolate was requested & I found this recipe. What a hit! The recipe was super easy, the cake was so moist & had a great flavor. My husband is not a big chocolate fan, but he said he really liked the cake part. The frosting was a bit too chocolatey for him (not me!). I had some leftover cream cheese frosting in the fridge (his fave) & he put some of that with the chocolate frosting & it was the perfect combination. I saved a few at home & had the last one 4 days after baking & it was still so moist & delicious. This will be my new chocolate cupcake go-to. I'll probably try a combination of the chocolate frosting & cream cheese frosting. If you are looking for an amazing cream cheese frosting, check out just omit the pecans. I put the pecans in the cake instead & this frosting keeps so long! It's been in my fridge 2 months & still tastes just as good as when I first made it!
