let them eat cupCAKEs!

Oliver turned two on Thursday. Two is a huge milestone (especially when you’ve only been around for 2 years) so we had to find a fitting way to celebrate. Last year I made carrot cake cupcakes, this year I’ve decided to go skip the “healthy” facade of carrot cake and go for chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles, because sprinkles make everything that much cooler.

I used Martha Stewart’s One Bowl Chocolate Cake recipe, and accompanying Chocolate Frosting. I did not make my own sprinkles!

Tomorrow will bring the Demise of the Cupcakes, photos to follow.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake


modifications: used vegetable oil; baked as cupcakes – 20 min. rotate 1/2 way through; I was generous with my scoops and made 18 instead of 24.

Chocolate Frosting


modifications: used unsweetened chocolate, added more powdered sugar
