I’ve been playing cupcake fairy all year long and I always love seeing what flavors my coworkers request.  I try not to influence their decisions too much since after all, it is their birthday, not mine.  I was positively thrilled when a recent birthday girl chose straight up chocolate cupcakes as her treat.  I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for someone to ask me to go all chocolate crazy!  (You didn’t know I liked chocolate, right? ;))  I opted for a devil’s food chocolate cupcake, filled it with dark chocolate ganache, and frosted them with a chocolate sour cream frosting.  Ooohhhh my, they were amazing.  A chocolate lover’s dream for sure.  I brought them in to work at 7:30 am and was able to resist mine until about 9:15 am.  So much for will power where these are concerned!  This frosting is most definitely the best chocolate frosting I’ve ever tried.  Smooth, fudgy and über chocolatey.  I’m already looking for any excuse to make it again.  Maybe breakfast tomorrow?

Note: This recipe makes a huge amount of cupcakes and frosting.  Certainly not a bad thing, but if you don’t need 30+ cupcakes, you should probably cut the recipe in half.
