First I would like to say, I didn’t make these right. This is one of those posts to share something that was done wrong. Sorry. My friend kept talking about German chocolate cake and then she mentioned coconut buttercream and that was all it took for me to get into the kitchen and make these. Except I didn’t have the right chocolate for the cupcakes and I didn’t have a box. Then to top off the whole cucpcake fiasco I didn’t add baking soda.
Let’s just take a moment and be sad for the first batch of extremely thick, extremely dense cupcakes.
Thankfully I have kids who don’t care that the cupcake is a brick.
Then I ran out of cupcake liners.
The filling didn’t turn out like I would have liked it to.
The frosting? Yeah that was good. While my children were distracted I stood in the kitchen and liked the batters.
I’m actually not going to post the recipe that I used. Maybe I’ll come across a better one and share that one. But I thought the cupcakes looked too cute not to share.
