First was Jorge's birthday celebration. He's a total chocoholic, so I knew I had to dial up the chocolate for him. For his cupcakes, I made chocolate chocolate chip cupcakes with a chocolate milk frosting.
I'm a big fan of using a boxed cake mix and then just doctoring it up. It just makes it all a little easier. For these chocolate cupcakes, I used a triple chocolate fudge cake mix. After filling the cupcake liners, I dropped in some semi-sweet chocolate chips for even more chocolate.
The birthday celebration wouldn't have been completed without some decorations. Jorge's love of all things Pixar made it an easy to choose a theme. After I figured out the theme with another friend, we got ot the printing. All of his office was covered with Pixar characters.
Needless to say, the chocolate milk buttercream will be a great addition to my frosting recipes. I can't wait to try it with a chocolate chip cookie cupcake.
Have you baked anything lately?
