Bringing some #american sweets to the #eid table tomorrow!
I made these chocolate #cupcakes earlier today and frosted them tonight with homemade chocolate #buttercream icing
I took the recipe from @recipesbycarina !
It's a decadent chocolate cake that's easy to make and her buttercream icing is easy as well😊
My problem was that I doubled the recipe and trust me, if you're not used to baking or following recipes to a "T" them is suggest just sticking with the original yield the first time. (I also did ALL the mixing by hand 😮) I'm still getting used to #baking with a gas stove and using #celsius as well so that could have been a factor. While they aren't the most beautiful cupcakes around they are definitely tasty! Lucky for me the cake isn't too sweet and the icing balances that out. I found the icing to be almost too sweet. I topped these with a dark chocolate that I shaved and grated. Hoping that mellows the super sweet flavor!
