Ever since I started that cupcake thread the other day, I have been hungry for choclate cupcakes with homemade choclate icing.

Well tonight I made some, got them all frosted and everything. Now I am gonna see if I can wait until tomorrow to eat some of them.

Not like mine, for the frosting I used a whole box of powdered sugar, a whole stick of real butter, and some cocoa, and some Hersheys syrup.

I didn't say I was gonna wait, I said I was gonna try.

I think I might try and go to bed, that don't always work though, I just lay in bed and think about them cupcakes, and I can't go to sleep.

butter icing makes all the difference. If you can't buy them, I'm sure you could put in a special request at a local bakery. Wait....Do local bakerys exist any more!!?

First off the cupcakes are a box cake, I cheat on them.


For the icing, I take a stick of butter (real butter) and cut it up so it can get soft, then I pour in the sugar and try to mix it up a little, then I add some vanilla and a little tiny bit of milk, just add a little milk at a time. Then I add some cocoa, probably about 2 tablespoons or so. If you want you can add some Hersheys syrup. I use a whole box of powdered sugar too.

And that is it.

Cupcakes - yummmmmm....now I want some too.

Ooh and Kenz, you actually get the baking part of chocolate chip cookies? I gave up on that years ago...I love the dough too much, so they never make it to the over.

Belinda, when I told my DH about your cupcake in the bowl with the glass of milk he said that sounded great, so that will be his new thing I guess. Thanks for that

Magnolia Bakery in NY has the best cupcakes ever!
Totally worth the lines around the block.

They have a cookbook too so you can make them at home.
