Last week I stumbled upon two of the “best” recipes.

Last week I also had mad chocolate cravings.

It was fate.

First up, I made the best chocolate cake ever from Amanda. I’m pretty sure I have made some version of this recipe before given the ingredients, but it just looked too delicious not to try.

It may not be made from scratch, but honestly… it is incredible. And I’m not much of a cake lover. If you have an amazing chocolate cake recipe from scratch, please share. Otherwise, go make this now. Better yet, make cupcakes. That way you can eat 13 of them in a sitting.

And once the cupcakes have cooled, you must frost the remaining 11 cupcakes with the best frosting ever. This recipe has many positive and negative reviews, but I must say I side with the positive.

See, I’m not much of a frosting fan. Don’t get me wrong, when I’m whipping up some homemade buttercream, I definitely have a tablespoon or seven. But frosting just isn’t my thing.

Until now.

I would never tell you that this is the best frosting I’ve ever had if it wasn’t. But it is. And trust me, I was skeptical. It isn’t too sweet. It’s fluffier than clouds. It was still delicious after the frosted cupcakes sat in the fridge. Just one piece of advice: follow the directions exactly.

The only sad part of this story is that I made said cupcakes on Friday night… intending we would have them for our anniversary on Sunday. Cupcakes lasted until Saturday.

Saturday morning.

Now I’m going to make another batch of frosting for dinner.
