Simple easy original chocolate cup cakes, are moist, light, chocolate and topped with creamy buttercream frosting. These are not over powering like a dense chocolate fudge cake, more like light airy chocolaty sweet cupcake.
My dad wanted some cupcakes to take to work, so how can i say no to that. A quick hour of baking is like relaxation to me. It lets me have a little me time and puts me in my element, I know this may sound strange, but since losing the weight five years, baking and cooking is like an outlet for me. I call it ‘baking therapy’, and this girl always needs some ‘baking therapy’!
There is something about a chocolate cup cake than brings out the child in me. Cupcakes remind me of children birthday parties, even though they are for all ages, but a cupcake with sprinkles always gives me that feeling.
