Cocoa Fudge Cupcakes

HOORAY! I have successfully made my FIRST batch of cupcakes from scratch! I was a bit worried at first, but I got over it right till the end when I didn't know if I had beaten the egg whites enough... AHHH!!! Good thing Mom was right downstairs to help me out. HAHA! 
Yes, these cupcakes were CHOCOLATE! Cocoa Fudge to be exact. They tasted super good and I was so happy that they did. :)
It was actually a lot of fun for me. I have never been much of a baker, but I think I might enjoy it someday. HAHA! 
 Ahh, such a beautiful cupcake. :) I love cupcakes so much. HAHA! THEY ARE SO YUMMY!!!!! YAHHHHH!!!!!
Anyways, crazy ranting is done for now... ;)
I did not make the frosting for the cupcakes... it was from a can. We didn't have any Crisco, so I used what I had. 
I noticed that the frosting in a can is incredibly creamy... it got me to thinking why my buttercream is not as... creamy... It reminds me of what my cake decorating teacher said once... "If you want a more creamy frosting just to ice a cake or put on cupcakes, use 1/2 cup Crisco and 1/2 butter instead of a whole cup of Crisco." AH-HA! Brilliance! So I shall just have to try that at some point. HAHA! 
Anyways, hope you have a wonderfully SWEET weekend! :)
