Chocolate Cupcakes

In January, I was honored to make a cake and cupcake tower for my little brother’s wedding.

However, after making close to 200 cupcakes, I did not want to look at another one for a looong time!  And I hadn’t until I saw that one of my favorite blogs, Your Cup of Cake, released its first cookbook.  Of course I had to have it.  What is so great about Lizzy is that she starts all of her recipes with box cake, but jazzes it up with additional ingredients and flavors.  You would never know it’s a box cake and all of the recipes are so easy!!!  Also, what’s great about the book is it is hardcover with a spiral binding.  I know, I’m a dork!

My sister in law recently had a little get together and asked me to bring some cupcakes.  From the book, I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

Look at how pretty!  And of course they tasted delicious.
