Today is National Chocolate Cupcake Day. Celebrate by baking cupcakes at home, supporting your local bakeries or just get em' at the grocery store.
When I think of chocolate cupcakes, I think of chocolate frosting on chocolate cake. Double chocolate with maybe some sprinkles or another garnish that wouldn't take over the chocolate. So to celebrate, I'm going to post a few shots I've taking from over the years of my cupcake craze that I just can't seem to shake. I probably never will. I just love eating cupcakes!
A chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles from my Birthday in 2007. These were so moist and rich and believe it or not, these cupcakes were from my local Safeway.
Oh, Magnolia Bakery, how we love thee. This bakery in NYC made famous from a scene in Sex and the City, makes delicious cupcakes with oh so thick frosting. This Magnolia Bakery location in West Village is probably always busy. The day I visited, it was crowded with people like me, grabbing cupcakes and devouring them. Gotta have it! http://www.magnoliabakery.com.
These super dark chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate shavings came from Red Apple, a local grocery store in my neighborhood. Since 2007, I've been always on the search for great cupcakes. As soon as I find them, I buy, shoot, and then, eat!
These chocolate cupcakes are from Pinkabella Cupcakes in Seattle. The cupcake in front is their Classic Chocolate Cupcake. The one in back is their German Chocolate. Lots of light, airy frosting tops a dense cake, good stuff. http://www.pinkabellacupcakes.com.
I hope I've make you hungry for chocolate cupcakes. I know I'm craving some now!
