It is succulent, moist, bitter and sweet with a fudgy density that makes itself apparent after a few seconds into the first bite.
Its also exceptionally good with as tablespoon or so of grated orange zest beaten into the batter.
Beautiful dark, rich cooked chocolate meringue buttercream frosting is not so sickly sweet as many of its butter and sugar cousins and lends a silky smoothness rounding out the whole textural experience.
I had great fun decorating the M&M cupcakes but I completely adore the heart decorative theme.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!
