Like most women I know Pamela Susan was on the hunt for the perfect cupcake recipe…lucky for us she found it. Her key criteria included chocolate, deliciousness, and ease/speed in making. Her post includes links to the perfect cake and buttercream recipes. Pamela also shares a tip for creating frosting of the most desirable consistency. Pamela also recommends the 1M frosting tip to achieve the beautiful swirled effect. She suggests piping frosting on top of the cupcake- starting on the outermost edge working inward. Top each decorated cupcake with candy, fruit, or another topping of your choice.
