50th Birthday Party Cupcakes

Recipe: Chocolate chocolate cupcakes with a red chocolate clay rose and champagne cupcakes with a chocolate “J” for the first initial of the birthday girl.

I had an order for three dozen cupcakes for a surprise 50th birthday party, which is exciting for a number of reasons, including that i get to share my cupcakes with an entirely new group of people. Since it was a special occasion, I suggested that I make chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and champagne cupcakes with champagne frosting.Initially I had thought that I should do a strawberry champagne cupcake, but I did a test run a week before and it turned out that the recipe I had was a.w.f.u.l. So i went back to my pink champagne cupcakes and just used straight champagne. Yum.
