Yummy Chocolate Cupcakes

22 Feb
Last night I made chocolate cupcakes based on The Pioneer Woman’s Chocolate Sheet Cake.  I didn’t have any buttermilk so I used regular milk.  I have a mental note to make sure I have all my ingredients next time.  And my was it delicious!  But I had a little problem making the batter.  Maybe I need a sifter, but my dry ingredients didn’t seem to disolve all the way.  I brought them to work this morning and nobody has said anything.  The hubby noticed (but he doesn’t count!) and I was really nervous to bring them.  But I’m sure someone would have mentioned them if they tasted it.  Here are some pics of the cupcakes (sorry these are pictures taken with my phone.  My comp is out of commission so this is the only way to upload pics)
 
I’m still working on my decorating skills…as is evidenced by the pictures below:
 
  
Needless to say, I feel like the cupcakes are a big success.  I’ve never made homemade cupcakes but they are really good! I did not make the frosting because a.) I ran out of butter (unbelievable) and b.) I had leftover store brand that I wanted to use up.  Everyone has liked them so far so I guess I’ll have to stick this recipe in my cookbook as a keeper!
