Day 16 – Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes

16 Aug

Well, Chocolate Cupcakes with Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe below from Roxana’s Home Baking)…to be more precise.

The cake is very dry.  A little blah…just not very interesting by itself.  Super easy to make.  Only 1 bowl required.  No mixer.

Coffee frosting

Frosting is thick and creamy.  Has a nice, sweet coffee taste.

Frosting makes everything better.  This cupcake is not exception.  The cake is definitely better WITH the frosting.  Though, it’s not enough to make it a great cupcake…but this is a frosting I’ll totally use again!
