Best. Cupcakes. Ever.

The Girl Wonder had a hankering for something sweet last night, so I promised to make cupcakes today. I found the recipe for these on my favorite food blog Cupcake Bakeshop.
They are Devil’s Food Cupcake with Chocolate Buttercream and probably the best I have had in years! They were super easy to make and oh so easy to eat. The cake has a wonderful texture and not too sweet, just perfect for the sweeeeet buttercream. I added a pinch of salt to the cake recipe and a half teaspoon of vanilla to the icing.

Good thing I did not make a resolution to lose the weight I gained over the holidays, because these are too good to resist! I thought ahead and only made half the recipe so there are fewer cupcakes for me to devour while the kiddos are in bed.

Cupcakes are my favorite thing in the world. Oh yum. Thanks for the link! (BTW, upon first glance, as I was scrolling down, I thought it was a yarn cake, and was already drooling. Brown is my favorite color! Oh, God. That sounds horribly boring, doesn't it? Oh well.)
