I participate in the Rising Tide Society‘s Tuesdays Together NYC group for creative entrepreneurs, and I have been known to bake treats for meetings. These wee chocolate cupcakes seemed necessary for a hot chocolate and goal setting meet-up!
I used my go-to chocolate cupcake recipe for these. It’s a sure thing! For the frosting, I started with a basic vanilla buttercream, adding a bit of cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate syrup. Not quite a recipe, I really just added ingredients until it looked–and tasted–right to me.
These cupcakes had an adventure getting to the meeting. There had been an incident on the subway, which was more crowded than I’ve ever seen it. A cupcake carrier takes up an unwelcome amount of space when you are packed in like sardines. This is how I discovered a unique solution.
