Okay, first let me tell you that I’m a VERY messy cupcake maker. Like, really messy! So.. since we got that clear.
Everyone loved this cupcake, seriously, everyone ate it and there was only 3 left by the end of the day. My personal opinion? I despied it lol. That’s so weird. I think maybe because the frosting is dark (and slightly bitter.. story follows). I really liked the “cake” though. Anyway.
Since I am too lazy to show you the modified recipe. I’m just going to link it and tell you what I did!
A recipe for chocolate cake that I turned into a chocolate cupcake.
I halved the cake recipe.
Made 1/3 of the frosting recipe. (I’m that good with math lol.)
Anyway, the note I want to state here… don’t let the sugar/water thing (from the frosting recipe) boil for 10 minutes… like NEVER! It will become overly bitter. Just let it get to golden and then immediately remove. You can also skip on adding the dark chocolate.
Just out of the oven.
The ugly bald cupcakes in need of frosting so bad.
Mmmmm. Messy but much better!
