Chocolate Fudge Cake - Chris' Results

I made the Chocolate Fudge Cake recipe last Thursday into cupcakes.  The recipe went together very quickly.  The girls & I had invited some friends over Saturday night since I had Sunday off and so I knew the cupcakes would keep well for that.  The batter was very dense and the resulting cupcakes were too.  Very fudgy and dense, but still moist.  For frosting, I made tiny batches of both cream cheese-vanilla frosting and chocolate.  I made both frostings very thin, then just dipped & swirled the cupcakes in the frosting - very quick.  The cream cheese frosting was really too thin to hold up against the chocolate, so I would make a proper batch next time & mix it to a thicker, spreading consistency, then put a nice layer on.  I found a recipe for chocolate frosting on the back of the Ghiradelli baking cocoa can and modified that - it was VERY yummy.  It came out glossy - but stayed soft and had a good, chocolatey flavor.  The chocolate frosted cupcake were the clear favorite.  This recipe is every bit as good as Grandma said - a definite keeper!
