Chocolate Cupcakes

We finally had a break in the rain just in time for Eamon’s Birthday Party. Jordan’s sister and I made a collection of signs to convert the wooden shelter at Eamon’s favorite park into a train station.

I also made Eamon’s favorite cupcakes, Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. They are incredibly moist, tender, flavorful cupcakes and are the easiest cupcakes to make, no softened butter or bringing ingredient to room temperature.

Two days later I made another batch of the same cupcakes for the Fall Festival at Eamon’s School. Soon I will share a little DIY on how I packaged them up individually for the bake sale!
