Chocolate Cupcakes



Towards the end of my run this morning, I started daydreaming about baking cupcakes. When I got to Barton Springs to soak my tired legs, Mike told me about a new bakery he was planning to try out today. I took that as a clear sign that great minds think alike and that it was obviously a cupcake kind of day.

I made a half recipe of the "Chocolate Cake That's Got It All" from CookSmart: Perfect Recipes for Everyday, which filled 12 cupcake papers, with some lickableness left in the bowl and on the spatula. A half recipe of "Soft and Creamy Double Chocolate Frosting" was just the right amount to generously top them.

Wow! Sinful. And you're a sinful woman for posting such temptation.

How funny, I've had a bit of a cupcake obsession lately. More with eating them than making them. We've got a fancy cupcake bakery going in to San Jose in the fall. And my favorite bakery, Sugar Butter Flour, makes great cupcakes!
