Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream and Chocolate BonBons

What’s more sassy than a Chocolate Cupcake with a swirl of buttercream?  I can’t hardly think of a thing!

A few weeks ago, before we headed out on an Independence Day Holiday – I baked a few chocolate cupcakes and decorated to my heart’s delight.

This is how it started.

I’m terrible when it comes to sifting my flour because I just don’t like to take the time.  But, I always sift my powdered cocoa.

I can usually pour 26 cupcakes from my Chocolate Layer Cake recipe.

The simple beauty of identical, freshly-baked cupcakes.


The variety of Chocolate Cupcakes begins with Orange Chocolate: a layer of chocolate ganache, orange buttercream, and an orange chocolate candy or cookie.

These cupcakes were just delicious and great fun to design.

I’m so lucky that I get to work with cake and cupcakes.

Sobriety makes so much possible.

And my people are everything.
