Chocolate Cupcakes with Creamy Chocolate Frosting

These cupcakes are just plain and simple, chocolatey goodness! I used my own version of Devil's Food mix (with a little vanilla pudding mix) and made creamy chocolate frosting using evaporated milk, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, butter and vanilla. I was super excited with the consistency and color, it was perfect for decorative frosting! The flavor was a bit of a disappointment though. I prefer a rich chocolate frosting and it had a little bit of a "fake" sweet taste to me. Next time I think I'll use my other recipe for rich chocolate frosting! 

Rich Chocolate Frosting

2 C. butter (softened)
9 C. confectioner's sugar
2 1/2 C. cocoa powder
1 t. vanilla extract
1 C. milk

In a large bowl, cream butter. Gradually beat in confectioner's sugar, cocoa, and vanilla. Slowly add milk until it reaches your preferred consistency.

I was also super excited about the new icing tip I purchased in order to make the cupcakes pretty. I felt like one of the only bakers out there who didn't own one yet, so I had to get it! I highly recommend it if you don't already own the 1M Wilton Icing tip. Your cupcakes will look much more professional! 

Overall, I was pretty happy with these cupcakes. They were a big hit at my Scentsy Party and everyone ate them up! So I guess I'll take that as a compliment... :)
