    I liked them and am going to see how it turns out as a cake since there are directions for that too! I do plan on using vegetable oil instead of olive oil though, could be because I'm pregnant but I felt like I could taste a hint of olive oil. Definitely moist and a good amount of chocolate taste!

    The cupcake was very dense :( I made it for a family party & all my guests that they were not good. I was embarrassed to say I had made them.

    I only made the cupcakes, but they were sooooo amazingly good!! Just let them cool completely so they set. When they were warm thy fell apart.

    Was a bit suspicious of the recipe due to the lake of eggs, but they turned out wonderfully. Almost too good...I want another one.

    Fabulous! Easiest frosting ever. And using high quality cocoa powder makes all the difference. Let the frosting cool for 2 montes deforestation pipping. It will run too fast.
