Texas Chocolate aka the "A Lette"

This is my Aunt Marshalette's recipe. I've always called it Texas Chocolate but who knows what it's really called. It's a chocolate cinnamon cupcake with the most wonderful chocolate pecan frosting. Seriously, so good. I grew up with my aunt bringing this as a sheet cake to all our family events. We all call my aunt "Lette" for short. Lette is a pillar. She is one of the strongest, most amazing, beautiful women I know. So it only made sense to make her recipe into a cupcake. Something I want to do for my bakery one day is name all my cupcakes after those people in my life who love me and who have supported me through I am calling this cupcake the "A Lette". It is also one of my best sellers- so thanks Aunt Marshalette!!

Warning: X Rated Cupcakes!

I got to bake for a bachelorette party! I really struggled with how to do this. I decided to go with my Devil's Food cupcake (kind of fitting for a bach party!) with my buttercream frosting. Then I melted white chocolate and dyed it "flesh" color- then I poured into a mold and decorated with black. They were a hit at the party and a good laugh!

I've never been a huge Boston Cream fan but part of starting my own business is trying new things and surprising my taste buds. Well oh my goodness am I glad I tried it- it was delicious. I mean honestly, I could put ganache on dirt and it would taste good! This tasty treat pleases the chocolate and vanilla lovers. Enjoy!
