      These were OK, but maybe they'll taste better after I glaze them. They didn't rise very high (maybe my flour is too old?) and they seem dry. I think 10 cupcakes would have been better than the 12. Sorry.

      Loved these cupcakes! I made them for a family friend who is coming over to our place tonight to celebrate his 40th birthday! His daughter and son love chocolate, so I thought this would make them really happy. The cupcakes look like they've come straight from a bakery - very impressive when decorated with thinly sliced fresh strawberries over a dollop of swirled whipped cream! Since I did not get any hazelnut-flavoured liqueur in my city, I've used some hazelnut chocolate melted as a substitute. Thanks Dale for helping me make their day so special:-)!
