German Chocolate Cupcakes

German Chocolate Cupcakes
I love homemade coconut pecan frosting! Who needs the cake?!? Anyway, I sliced German Chocolate cupcakes in half and sandwiched the first layer of frosting in between. I added the top half and piped a border of my other favorite frosting - Hershey's homemade chocolate frosting - and plopped another nice big spoonful of coconut pecan frosting in the center of that.
For the ones I was taking to work, I layered in plastic cups with a lid. You can see something similar in a previous post, found here.

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cinnamon Buttercream

Red Velvet with Cinnamon Buttercream
Straight from the pages of Baked: New Frontiers in Baking comes Red Velvet Cake with Cinnamon Buttercream Icing. Moist tender cake topped with my favorite vanilla boiled buttercream frosting, to which a hint of cinnamon was added. This made a lot of cupcakes! The recipe said it made a triple layer cake, and you can never have too much cake! I added a cinnamon red hot "glued" with melted chocolate to the bottom of a chocolate chip and perched in right on top.
