Passion Choco Cupcakes

Last month bought a another recipe book by Kevin Chai "Beautiful Cupcakes"! This is the 1st recipe I've tried from the book. I chosen a chocolate flavour as I intend to submit this recipe for the upcoming Aspiring Bakers #7 - May 2011 Chocolate Delight Theme! As at to-date I've already submitted a total of 11 entries including this :D Really appreciate Small Small Baker whom started this event. From this event I really get to know more others passionate bakers :D With plenty chocolate chips, cocoa powder & chocolate bars in my pantry, you would not be surprise I will be baking more chocolate stuffs this coming weeks :D
