Ok, I lied about the cupcake thing. Or, rather, I have gotten over my temporary case of cupcake-overload. Yesterday, this photo was easy to ignore. Today, it's impossible.
Behold: the "Coffee & a Donut" cupcake. Mocha cake + mocha buttercream + a powdered donut. It's so wrong, it's right.
I made 48 of those babies for the MAWA "Over the Top" party last weekend (and a few more for...ahem... quality control purposes). The recipe for the Amazing Mocha Buttercream can be found on my food blog "Relish".
