Let's talk about chocolate cupcakes. Specifically the light and fluffy kind with thick fudgy icing. Not the billowing cloud of butter cream, but the kind you can feel your teeth sliding into. The kind that melts in your mouth like a chocolaty dream.
There's really not a chocolate cupcake I'd ever say no to, unless it's concealing something healthy, like fruits or vegetables. I love giant mounds of buttercream, but this fudge icing is like a Hostess cupcake gone mad. I absolutely adore it. And the cupcake itself is like a pillow. Though I suppose one wouldn't get much sleeping done with that sort of temptation under their heads. Silliness aside, this cupcake is heaven.
These were made for a going away party for someone headed off to Brazil, so I chose yellow papers and blue and green sprinkles. But one of the greatest things about cupcakes is how they can be personalized for almost any occasion. Endless possibilities. Just the way it should be.
So yeah, chocolate cupcakes. Aren't you glad we had this little chat? Get ya some!
