I can be joyful this week because I have a short work week. We have a wedding to attend and therefore are calling a mini vacation for the end of the week.
I will try not to gloat too much.
In case you have to work all five days this week, I made you something to help you get through. Chocolate on chocolate cupcakes. The classics.
I actually prefer yellow cake with chocolate frosting but I was in the chocolate kind of mood.
I got a piping bag a week ago and was itching to frost. Swirl, swirl, swirl. I only wish I had more cupcakes.
What is your favorite type of cupcake?
