I made these cupcakes to celebrate the arrival of our friends' new baby girl Niamh (who is soooo cute!). They love chocolate cake so I made a batch of chocolate cupcakes but rather than topping them with buttercream I tried out a cocoa fudge frosting. It was quicker to make than buttercream and less messy (no clouds of icing sugar settling all over the kitchen). It tasted really nice and was less buttery and rich than buttercream. The receipe can be found using the following link and the quantity shown covers 12 cupcakes.
