Chocolate Cupcake with Raspberry Mouse Frosting
This was inspired by those Ghirardelli chocolate squares with raspberry filling. Jay thought we should definitely go chocolate for Happy, and for some reason my mind got stuck on those Ghirardelli squares. I cheated used a boxed Devil's Food cupcake mix, but made up for it with this frosting. I think the girls agree (still fighting over the spoon) that this is the yummiest frosting so far. I found the recipe for raspberry mouse frosting here. Her pictures show a much smoother and seed-free pink mouse, not sure what I did wrong. But it is delicious!

Guinness Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
When I first started this high cupcake honor, George predicted that his would have something to do with beer. I hadn't thought about beer until he mentioned it, but I knew immediately that he was correct.
The smell of the Guinness and chocolate baking together was amazing. Wow! The cupcake itself is delicious, but I'm not sure about the frosting. All together it is very rich. Or maybe the frosting just doesn't taste as well when you're also drinking the left over Guinness. Hmmm.
I used this recipe. The cupcake delivery will have to wait until tomorrow. Nighty nightzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
