And the last dessert from Courtney’s bridal shower, adorable little chocolate cupcakes. The recipe for the mini cupcakes comes from a blog called “Baking Bites” while the presentation idea comes from another blog called “Savannah Smiled”. I love the presentation with the mini cupcakes sitting in a plastic goblet on top of candies and then topped with a decorative pick. Since it was a wedding shower and it is so close to Valentine’s Day, I went with the conversation hearts for the candy and then to match those, little heart cut out on my cricut and attached to a toothpick. Cute, cute, cute, people are so clever! The cupcakes tasted ok, nothing special though.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 Preheat oven to 350. Line 48 mini muffin cups with paper liners.
2 Sift together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
3 In another bowl, whisk together milk, oil, vanilla and vinegar. Pour into dry ingredients and stir just until combined and no streaks of flour remain.
4 Distribute batter evenly into prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.
5 Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, until a tester inserted in center comes out clean.
