Cupcakes are the rage and I think it's because they are easy to make pretty. I am not an out-of-the-box cook and found this yummy from-scratch recipe on Martha Stewart.com. The icing is Wilton's buttercream, as my daughter thought white was prettier. I will not be eating these. I am content to just watch other people. I did take one bite to confirm that real Dutch-processed cocoa was needed. My grocery store does not carry it so I will need to order. I used to buy this at Jungle Jim's, but they did not carry it any more, maybe because the cost is prohibitive. $29.00 for a bag of cocoa powder just seems wrong...the price has more than doubled since I last bought a bag. So Bensdorp it is.
