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
