Cupcakes Part One

As February approaches, I have cupcakes and chocolate on my mind. . . dark, milk, German, Swiss, any chocolate will do.  These cupcakes are made with dark cocoa powder, which has a deep, rich, flavor.

My tricks for cupcakes;
1. Start with good ingredients and always reduce the sugar
2.  Experiment with different flours (the above cupcakes are half white/half whole wheat)
3.  Make a small batch of frosting rather than store bought (less of a temptation to eat out of tub)
4.  Top with fruit rather than frosting

I can't wait to show you more cupcake ideas and what I have been baking lately.  More to come soon. . .
