5 de Mayo Chocolate Cupcakes

5 de Mayo. An important date in the history of Mexico... The french forces were defeated by General Zaragoza in an epic battle...

This time I went prepared for this battle of mine with the perfect recipe, the best ingredients, the girls were sleeping and the time was right, ... As I aproached de mixer I prayed for fluffines, moisture and hight... When I finished with my batter I was confident, it looked great, smelled great and It had no butter! Everything was perfect what possibly could go wrong???

I have no answer, I am a desgrace for my ancestors and a shame for the cupcake world... Chocolate won again!

I swear I am not trying to make this blog like Pintester ( I love it!!! , if you want to laught I highly recommend it) where this lady messes things up just for the fun of it .

Do you have a great and easy recipe to help me in my quest? What am I doing with my chocolate that allways goes wrong?
