Pink Cupcakes


My daughter Sarah, who is 14 years old, has always been obsessed with chocolate, since she was little.

Her favorite desserts are :

* Chocolate Mousse, easy to make, no baking,

Moelleux au chocolat, it’s also my favorite cake,

Brownies, my kids love them!

She loves eating anything with chocolate in every meal.

When we make these pink cupcakes, her father is so happy! Because he is not a big fan of chocolate and these cupcakes are really delicious.

They are pretty with a pink frosting, but  you can choose whatever food coloring and create beautiful cupcakes.

About the author
  1. I’ve never used buttermilk in a cupcake recipe, but it sounds like a great idea!

  2. I love chocolate, too, but also cupcakes with buttercream frosting. These look delicious! Your family is very blessed to have you bake for them.

  3. Lovely shade of pink. My husband doesn’t care for chocolate so he would be a fan of the cupcakes but perhaps I might change the color. 😀

  4. They look fantastic and I love their color!
