Chocolate Cupcake w/French Vanilla Frosting

Cupcake made cupcakes!

I actually need more cupcakes in my life and after finding this stellar chocolate cake recipe, they will definitely happen more often.

It was a different method combining ingredients than I’m used to, and the batter was strangely thin, but oh it’s so delicious.

I didn’t use the frosting recipe that is on the website. I used Ignited Moth’s tried and true light whipped frosting recipe.

1 package instant pudding mix (any flavor)

Milk

1 tub cool whip

Use just enough milk to make a paste of the pudding mix, then fold in half the tub of cool whip. Taste test. Add more cool whip to preference.

Lemon Cupcakes w/Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

My first niece turned 1 on Pie Day. So of course Aunt CUPCAKES & Machetes is going to make her cupcakes! (She did not yet receive a machete.) Now she didn’t actually get to eat the cupcakes as she’s still learning solid foods but it doesn’t matter. I’ll bake her cupcakes every freaking year. She also had the BEST reaction when opening a book, which was screaming at the top of her lungs. I really wish I had gotten that on video.

I LOVE the cake in this recipe. I personally thought the icing was a little too sweet but everyone else assured me that I was the only one thinking such thoughts.

They’ll never win a beauty contest.
