Wacky chocolate

We killed the Christmas cookies. They are gone. Not even a flake of coconut to be had.

So, of course we had to make something for the cake plate...
Wacky Chocolate cupcakes. I usually make this recipe into a sheet cake, but decided to try cupcakes, because I felt the need to make some pink frosting.
Wacky Chocolate cake:
3 c. flour
2 c. sugar
2/3 c. cocoa
2 tsp soda
2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
1 c. oil
2 c. water
Mix together and pour into greased 9x 13 cake pan, or muffin tins and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.
Note: this is a very moist cake, and I have tried 100 times to make it into a layer just doesn't work.

These won't last long!

Ooo, I love this cake! I've made it many times, never been disappointed.
I wanted to tell you that I made your chocolate crinkles cake over the holidays. It was a big hit with my chocolate loving family.

Um, that was supposed to be chocolate crinkles cookies. Now I have that cake on the brain!

Those are so lovely and they look scrumptious! I have been wanting an cool glass cake platter and cover forever and now I REALLY want one - and some chocolate cupcakes to go on it!
