Jump to Double Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe Ella and Hailey turned thirteen last weekend, so I took the opportunity to improve my double chocolate cupcake game. In the past, they’ve been good but not great, and they needed some thought and effort beyond just using my standard chocolate layer cake recipe. I’m happy to report, the slight tweakingContinue reading Double Chocolate Cupcakes
Jump to Cocoa Buttercream Frosting Recipe This recipe isn’t new, it’s in the post for Mom’s Chocolate Cake, but I think it deserves a page of its own.

Ella just reported there are four left then said, “You didn’t hear it from me, but I saw Hailey sneak one earlier.” (Pretty rich coming from the girlContinue reading Spritz Cookies
