Dark Chocolate Mocha Cupcake Recipe
Mocha is my absolute favorite type of cupcake. If my other mocha cupcake recipe didn't get you hooked, this Dark Chocolate Mocha Cupcake Recipe will!

I used the large Star Tip in this kit to frost these cupcakes. I've found it's the easiest to use and yields the prettiest results without any effort.
