Triple Chocolate Cupcakes

These are the best chocolate cupcakes I've ever eaten. I topped them with some homemade chocolate buttercream frosting and they were gone very quickly. Many people have already asked for the recipe. If you like chocolate, you can't go wrong with this recipe!

Muy Excelente!

These cupcakes were very delicious and so easy to make. I gave them out to my friends in band at MSU and everyone loved them. They commented on how moist and delicious they were!

Great birthday cake

This is a very moist, rich, creamy cake. I have made this many times for family birthday parties and always get compliments. I have made it in a 9 x 13 pan and in (2) 9 inch pans with success. It does require you to cook a little longer than the box directions. This is a very delicious cake.
