Baking and decorating cupcakes is one of my favorite things to do. Aside from how perfectly delicious they are, an entire afternoon in my kitchen covered in flour and icing is my idea of time well spent. So when I needed a great way to wish my dear dear friend Shannon a happy birthday, cupcakes were the natural choice. And because I love her so much, I decided to make her my personal favorite... dark chocolate cupcakes with buttercream icing and chocolate sprinkles.
Doesn't get any better than that. Happy birthday to Shannon and happy baking to the rest of you!
