So I made these cupcakes a while back. Back before I even thought of starting a blog. I made these right after I decided that I enjoy baking enough to open a bakery. Or at least a cupcakery. One day in the future. I guess that’s why I started taking pictures and posting them on Facebook. One of my coworkers is pregnant with her second baby and I know from a past birthday experience that she likes chocolate. Instead of doing a cake, I made her cupcakes. Chocolate cupcakes. I even decided at the last minute to throw some chocolate chips into the batter. The fact that it was a last minute decision ended up causing the chips to sink to the bottom. Oh well. They were there and made it more chocolate-y. At least the bottom of the cupcake. I made chocolate buttercream to frost them and even made little chocolate swirls and decorations to put on top. I found some cute cupcake boxes at a craft store that was approriately decorated… with cupcakes!
Did you notice in the pic where they’re all packed up I forgot the chocolate decorations? I didn’t think they set up correctly and had scraped the idea. I went and checked a few hours later and noticed they had set properly. Yay! I was excited.
And most importantly, they got the seal of approval from my taste tester.
And they passed the coworker test, too!
