Le Petit Gâteau Des Légions Noires

From: http://theblackoven.blogspot.com/ In a perfect world everything would be as stark and void of color as these cupcakes. They are baneful in their absolute disdain for your tastelessness, and are true misanthropes as far as baked goods go.

These little cakes are fabulous! I made some with the cream cheese center and some without. This recipe makes a great chocolate cupcake! I personally think if you put the center, only put a little! Thanks for sharing!!!!
