Another week done and dusted and what a busy one it has been. Now of course my favourite way to end it, is with something chocolate!!!!
Chocolate Cupcakes with Butter Cream Frosting
This recipe is one my mum made religiously my entire childhood, I would not have the slightest clue where the original recipe came from, it is at least as old as I am. Mum use to ice these cupcakes in good old chocolate icing and use lollies to make smiley faces =D This is a little bit different but Mum certainly approved the new version of her classic chocolate cake recipe. I decided to try Cupcake Addictions butter cream frosting and my gosh is it amazing!!!! You have to try it, I rate it a 20/10. It is that good.
