I completely forgot about posting a pic of these cute little cupcakes! My daughter wanted to make cupcakes for her boyfriend for Valentine's Day, so we got out my beloved kitchen aid mixer and got to work.
Recipes are from my Betty Crocker cookbook.
Cocoa Fudge Cake:
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups of sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla ( I recommend real vanilla)
heat oven to 350 degrees
beat all ingredients on low for 30 seconds, scrape down sides of bowl
beat on high for 3 minutes
Creamy Cocoa frosting:
1/3 cup butter softened
1/3 cup cocoa
2 cups powered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons milk ( I used about 5)
The hearts are made from candy microwaveable wafers.
I put them in an icing bag that was microwave safe.
Then I drew heart shapes on wax paper.
After they have hardened, you can easily remove them.

Happy Belated Valentines Day!!!
