Double-The-Chocolate Mocha Cupcakes

Inspired by a recent post of mine, my mom made these intense dark chocolate mocha cupcakes, and topped them with a chocolate buttercream frosting. The recipe for the cake was exactly the same as what I posted before, and the frosting is the same as what’s on that post but with cocoa powder added to it (the cake is super chocolatey and dense, so it’s up to you to add however much cocoa you want to the frosting depending on your flavor preferences). I piped the frosting on the top for her in an elegant, but simple, design. If this cake doesn’t make your mouth start watering just from the pictures, description, and recipe, then you should probably make it anyway because it’s just that good. Yum.

      yes, and when i presented them in a clear 12 cupcake carrier, no one ate them — i think they looked so perfect that people assumed they were bakery made. when i transferred them to a plate, they were gone in a fast minute!
