Chocolate Cupcakes with Pink Frosting

My birthday is next week, so I was craving some cake. I know the only way I will be getting a birthday cake is for me to make it myself. The frosting recipe is from a box of Domino's sugar. I make my cupcakes big, like fill up the cupcake liner big. So this recipe actually made 18 cupcakes instead of the 24 it calls for. This also means that the frosting recipe could have probably been cut in half, especially when your husband starts eating the cupcakes before they are frosted.

Happy birthday to me!




Devil's Food Chocolate Cake
makes 24 cupcakes

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Measure out everything but the eggs directly into your mixer bowl.
2. Mix on low speed just until incorporated.
3. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes.
4. Add eggs, beat on high speed again for 2 minutes.

Measure out into cupcake pan lined with cupcake papers. A 2" ice cream scoop works great for this. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool slightly in the pan then transfer to a rack to cool completely before frosting.

Buttercream Frosting

1 - (1 lb.) pkg. Domino® Confectioners Sugar (approx. 3 3/4 cups)
1/2 cup - butter or margarine, softened
3 to 4 tablespoons - milk
1 teaspoon - vanilla

Combine in large bowl, with mixer at low speed, confectioners' sugar, butter, milk and vanilla.

Beat at medium speed 1-2 minutes until creamy. If desired, add more milk until frosting is spreading consistency.

Makes enough to fill and frost 2-layer cake, 13x9x2-inch sheet cake, or 24 cupcakes
