    GingerPeach's Note:

    These are moist and rich without being too fatty. I love the frosting because it's very easy and very chocolatey.

      These are a joke. I wouldn't call this a real recipe or cupcakes. When I saw the amount of butter I was suspicious. The batter was basically like cookie dough. Don't make these! Waste of time. Dense, heavy and hard. The opposite of what I want in a cupcake. I tried by adding more butter but it was leathery batter. I gave one star because I was worried that if I gave none than it wouldn't bring the ratings down.

      These were the worst cupcakes I have ever made! The batter was thicker than cookie dough and the cake wasn't spongy at all! I would give this recipe no stars if I could.
