What makes them so much better? Or is that a secret? I mean chocolate cupcakes are always good, right?
The cake itself was light and moist, with a wonderful chocolate flavor. The frosting tasted of cocoa, so I thought, but it turns out you use bittersweet chocolate squares. Most baked goods seem to be very flat in flavor, and frostings seem to be whipped shortening.The recipe here for the cake and the Chocolate Buttercream frosting used all nice fresh ingredients, carefully added just so, including sifting the flour and the confectioner's sugar, something I haven't done in a long while.I've been looking for a perfect chocolate cake, and this may just be it.
Purchased baked goods, I meant up there...are flat...
Yum. Sounds wonderful!
