Chocolate Cupcakes with a Chocolate American Buttercream

Happy Belated Birthday to my Dad. We’ve been off line working hard. Apologies for not posting much. Ive been planning out a couple of courses, which one has launched and the other is on its way. I’ll have more info on it on, which will have printables available.

Anyway, we celebrated my Dad’s, aka Pop Pop’s, 74th birthday. Matthew and I made delicious Bon Bons as a gift since he doesn’t want anything except Chocolate Cake. Every year all we hear is how we never make him chocolate cake. Listen I make him chocolate cake often, but now he really can’t complain as he got it. Now yes I did saw cake, this was cupcake style but i use the same recipe x2 for stacked cake. I just didn’t feel like baking all day, stacking, freezing etc for a cake, especially when my fridge is overfilled with leftover, milk and groceries.
