Ok, so these cupcakes aren’t fancy, or ingenious or a new invention.
BUT they are yummy.
Isn’t that why we are all here?
They are simple and yummy and necessary.
Necessary because you should be able to whip up a delicious chocolate cupcake whenever you get the urge.
A cupcake that is rich, chocolatey, indulgent, delicious….and easy.
You should definitely have a good chocolate cake/frosting recipe in your life.
This is mine.
Really Yummy Chocolate Cupcakes.
Also…since I did my buttercream frosting post a while back I got some requests on how to pipe a swirl on a cupcake.
I am not an expert decorator, but I can pipe an adequate swirl.
Make your yummy fudgy frosting…
I use disposable piping bags.
Please keep your judgement on my disposable bag use to yourself. I’m wasteful. I get it.
I also use my Wilton 1M tip for a swirl most often. You need this tip. They’re cheap, so buy two.
Snip off the end of the disposable bag…about an inch.
I put my bag into a cup and fold over the edges to help me fill it easier…
Now, start with a your naked chocolate cupcake…
I most often do a “regular swirl” and an “inside-out swirl”. Those are not the official names…it’s just what I call them.
Here’s how I do a “regular swirl”.
Start from the outside of the cupcake and work in a circle.
Now an “inside out swirl”…some people call it a rose swirl…tomato-toMAHto
Start from the inside out.
I love them both!
