Chocolate and coffee CUPCAKES

Cupcakes are for party, and for this time I suggest Mezzo Mezzo cupcakes, a dark and handsome chocolate-coffee cupcake from ...............  Browsing the book last night and I had a feeling that this was the one I want. Chocolate and coffee flavor is great for everyone, and this one is very good for every party. This cupcake is not too sweet and filled with rich chocolate and coffee flavor, topped with chocolate and coffee whipped cream (that tastes like coffee ice cream, yummy). You can eat them plain if you like but the chocolate and coffee whipped cream makes this cupcake much more delicious.

Pretty as a picture, and this is my favorite coffee cake recipe, too. Apart from "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World", "Cupcakes Galore" is the best cupcake cookbook I own.
