Rocky Road Cupcakes with Starbucks Mocha Dark Chocolate Frosting for May Birthdays!


#1 BIRTHDAY IN MY BOOK: My Mom...She is 85 years young to day...pictured with Nigel!


So many May Birthdays! Mom, Carol Ann, Margaret, Dianne, Rick and Harry (Catherine's french bulldog!). The sugar cookies were made from a Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix (they recently sponsored a cookie recipe contest called "Bake Life Sweeter")...very easy to use and quick to make.


This fellow only has eyes for Rocky Road Cupcakes with Starbucks Mocha Dark Chocolate Frosting!


I used Starbuck's new Mocha Dark Chocolate: "rich, dark chocolate meets the citrus and cocoa notes of Guatemala Cai Cielo coffee for a delightfully sublime indulgence"...it gave the frosting a rich, deep flavor!


This is Harry's very own cupcake...but of course, he can't eat it...no dogs were harmed during the photo shooting of these cupcakes!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL MAY BABIES!
Rock On~

    Tell us about stitches, dagnabbit!

    I had to have a moment to myself after one of those rocky road creations. Made my toes curl ... in that way, you know.
