Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream

 My oldest son asks to make cake almost daily. I bought a few cake mixes and have been getting him to make cupcakes. I supervise, but he’s ten and can do most of it himself.

I’ve been making Favourite Chocolate Buttercream from Sally’s Baking Addiction and it is so delicious. I tried her Favourite Vanilla Buttercream, but for me, it was a bit too sweet. Maybe I’m just too much of a chocolate lover, but her chocolate buttercream is divine.

We have our “blast chiller” now. In the winter, we often set baked goods out on our balcony to cool down quickly in the negative 20’s and 30’s. It’s convenient since it’s just off the kitchen. I prefer no sprinkles, but the kids will always want sprinkles. Actually, those chocolate sprinkles are pretty good. Next time I’ll have to get some of those.
