Chocolate Cupcakes and Ruby Red Slipper Cupcakes

4:00 AM







As you know a few weeks ago I decided to test out a high heel cupcake recipe here.  I think I did pretty ok, especially for my first time testing this out.  So today I have two different types of cupcakes for you.  The first one is a ruby red slipper cupcake, and the second one is a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting.  I’m not a huge fan of chocolate cakes and frostings but my taste testers (aka my parents and coworkers) said they were delicious and devoured in seconds.  With that being said lets talk about the cupcake and frosting recipe.  Also, if you’d like to see the tutorial for my high heel cupcakes, the original post is here.  I'll list the full recipes at the bottom of the post.


I did my recipe a little different.  I just mixed everything together in one bowl, I know that’s baking 101 that you have to really follow directions on certain things, but the cupcakes came out good regardless! Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt.


Add in the butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. 


Fill the cupcake cups 3/4 full.


Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Frost with your favorite frosting when cool.
