Devilishly Decadent Chocolate Cupcakes

Cupcakes, cupcakes and more cupcakes.  They are the culinary rage now aren’t they?  Just about everywhere you go, you see them.  They aren’t just for kids parties anymore, adults crave them just as much.  The great thing about cupcakes, is that you can adorn them in your own special way,  thus personalizing it to one’s own unique creation and theme.  Cupcakes are perfect for all seasons and occasions, I’ve even seen them at wedding receptions and formal functions.  I guess they are pretty versatile and can be eaten straight from the cupcake liner without the need for silverware.  It is much easier to transport to a picnic, birthday celebration or bridal/baby showers too.  Now that we’re all sold on adult cupcakes, let’s take a peek at these cupcakes shall we?  It is topped with a fudgy buttercream layer, the chocolate cake just melts in your mouth.  Do take my word for it, say hello to the ultimate, devilishly decadent chocolate cupcake!  My camera did get a workout, so I hope you will enjoy these  images.

    1. We don’t celebrate V-Day either, but I had to make it extra special for the blog :). Enjoy your weekend, I have a fondness for sweets too and might just make something sweet for dessert tomorrow. Those cupcakes were leftovers from a dinner I hosted, but I gave them all away as I didn’t want or need the temptation 🙂

    1. It’s tough to say no to these sweet treats every so often. I wonder how some people have the discipline, although mind you, I gave all but one of those cupcakes away. I’ll check your post 🙂

    1. Yes, I too double up on the frosting usually, but I had read that particular recipe made a bit too much, and I didn’t trust myself with so much leftover frosting waiting to be dug in :).


    1. Oh thanks Andrea, that’s so kind of you to say that. I hadn’t done it in a while, so was a bit shaky on them. Thanks to you too for co-hosting the Fiesta 🙂


  2. No I am feeling all loved up after all – in love with your beautiful cupcakes, no less! The pictures are gorgeous, I love all the different decorations. Thank you so much for bringing them along to Fiesta Friday!
