A few weeks ago one of our good friends turned 40, and I made these mocha cupcakes for her party. I looooove coffee in any form: french press, latte, IV drip - and I especially love the combo of coffee and chocolate.

The "cake" part of these cupcakes is the recipe we've used for family birthday cakes for as long as I can remember. It was given to my mom by a friend, and it's so delicious! I love that these cupcakes have such good chocolate flavor and are also moist (I'm sorry, I also hate that word, but I'm at a loss for a synonym). The coffee flavor comes from the espresso buttercream I piped on top.

I have made more cupcakes in the last few months than I ever thought possible. I completely blame the tip set I bought, because I swear frosting cupcakes is an addiction. If you've never tried, you really should! I thought it would be difficult, but it's actually incredibly easy and makes cupcakes look super fancy.
