Chocolate Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting
—Recipe after the jump—
These taste amazing. Ok it’s chocolate so you can’t really go wrong with it, but the texture of the cake is really important too, right? If you follow the recipe, your cupcakes should turn out beautifully sponge and soft, just like mine did :) I made these for a friend’s get together and they were really quickly swooped up.
The only difference I made was I made 24 mini cupcakes instead of 12 big ones.
Recipe from Laura in the Kitchen (She’s really great because she’s demonstrates everything on video)
Makes 1 Dozen
(Although I used Laura’s method this isn’t Laura’s buttercream frosting. You can check it out here if you’re interested)
Makes enough to frost about 16 mini cupcakes
1) In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until well combined and smooth. Add the milk and keep whisking until you get a smooth and creamy frosting consistency. (Add 1 more tbsp of milk if you think it’s necessary)
