These may seem like simple chocolate cupcakes, but they’re cupcakes that I’m especially proud of – because they’re officially the first baking recipe that I created entirely myself! The buttercream icing I have made before, and it is an actual recipe that I got from somewhere. But I’ve been using it for cupcakes for so long that I no longer have the actual recipe, nor do I remember where I got it from.
And even though the cakes are all mine, I can’t actually take credit for putting them together – that would be the handiwork of my two girls, who helped me make them for their teachers at the end of the school year this past June. I was happy to see that not only did my first baking recipe produce moist and delicious cupcakes, but that it was also so easy, a 3-year-old can do it!
Whenever you need to make baked goods for your favourite teacher, for a bake sale, or just to satisfy your craving for chocolate, I highly recommend these!
