Club Baked: Devil's Food (Cup)Cakes with Angel Frosting

Happy New Year!

It's been a few weeks since my last post. I thought I would kick off the new year with a BAKED post. Our first recipe for the new year was picked by my friend, Natalie of Just About Food.

I made these into cupcakes for my cousin who's going back to school after his winter break. He has a 10 hour drive ahead of him and really appreciated the snack!

The devils food cake was an easy recipe to put together consisting of cocoa powder (I used valhorna), strong coffee, more dark chocolate and brown sugar. The cake was moist and super chocolaty... This may become my go to chocolate recipe.

The angel frosting was easy to make and looked amazing on the cupcakes but for me the taste wasn't there. Eaten alone it tasted marshmallow-y. Eaten with the cake, it didn't really add any flavor. I think a fudgy frosting would go really well with his cake.

Cupcakes are always a great option. I know I'd like to have those on a long car ride! Happy New Year!

Your cupcakes look great! I didn't get to bake along this time (or the last few) since I was finishing up my dissertation, but with that behind me I am looking forward to blogging!

Cupcakes for me, too! These would make a long car ride go faster that's for sure!

Happy New Year!

Your cupcakes looks delish! I liked the frosting, but agree that these would be even better with a fudgy topping!! Happy 2012!

Thank you.
