In my personal opinion, this was the best tasting chocolate cupcake I had ever tried. And I'm giving all the credits to Tartelette! I think baking is more of a science than it is an art. Although cake decorating is a whole other topic on its own. :) I followed the recipe step by step and I managed to produce the cupcakes.
The texture of these cupcakes is moist and soft. You'll definitely be able to taste the dark chocolate and it is not too sweet. One adjustment I made to the recipe is the frosting. I tried the cream cheese frosting from this recipe, but it just didn't work for me. In its place, I made a whipped dark chocolate ganache frosting. The verdict: silky and rich!
I realized soon after I started making my first cupcakes that people are much more likely to try a mini cupcake than they would a regular cupcake. I guess size matters. So, for these cupcakes, I managed to baked 15 regular sized cupcakes and 24 mini cupcakes. I also left some of the cupcakes unfrosted for those who are more health conscious.
