Hey, did you know it’s chocolate cake day? :-)
Not that I really need a “unique” holiday
to celebrate with chocolate cake.
But I will take the holiday just the same.
I actually made these mocha cupcakes a few months ago
for a friend’s birthday…
Can you believe that I have been holding out on you???
I have had this amazing cupcake just sitting on my computer
waiting to be shared with you, my fabulous readers.

I was just…uuummm…waiting for the right day…
like chocolate cake day:-)
Or something like that!
You believe me right?
Because I would never intentionally hold something
so absolutely delicious back from you…
really I did just forget to post them here.
Want to know something else?
These cupcakes are NOT the only ones that have been forgotten…
I found some other ones I made for a baby shower months ago.
Yup, you read that right…months ago!!!
I haven’t shared those either.

I should be fired as a food blogger:-)
Baking such deliciousness and forgetting about them so quickly!
Or…I could just share these now and the other ones..
in a month or two:-)
Yes, sharing a yummy toffee mocha cupcake
today would make you so happy, right?
Then there would be no need to fire me.
Win win for both of us today!!!

That is until you make and eat all these,
then your thighs won’t be very happy with me either.
And you will be back to wanting to fire me…
it might be best if you do some cupcake sharing too!
I want to keep the job of food blogger for a little bit longer:-)

    These look amazing! I don’t do too man sweets since it’s just John and I but the next time I’m visiting with family I will have to make some of these – lots of people to share with then.

    Ok these look scrumptious! And beautifully decorated, too! I made something mocha flavored this week too… Mocha Swirl Cookies! There’s just something about that coffee taste…..

    Yesterday I made some just plain chocolate cupcakes & my hubby was laughing at me b/c I was smelling them since I can’t eat them (b/c of my dumb diet)! Then I told him how I go to your blog everyday to get my sugar fix by looking at your pics! Ha! Yes I’m a weirdo!!!!

    Hope y’all have a great weekend!!!
