199 Cupcakes for an 80'th Birthday, and One Crushcake for my Dad's Face

It was my Grandmothers 80'th birthday, but my Dad's turn for a crushcake to the face...
He was a great sport about it! 


Showing Mom and Lil 'Sis How its Done... And Lil 'Sis caught in the act of finger licken' 

One of four trays of cupcakes made in the church kitchen that morning

Team Crushcakes: Leslie Townsend, Sarah Kate Kendrick, and Chelsea Kendrick, 
mother daughter cupcake awesomeness. 

The Finished Product: 
Devil's Food Cake with Chocolate Buttercream and 
Angel Food Cake with Strawberry Buttercream

Guess which one my grandmother chose....
The Angel food of course! 

See Angel Food Cake Recipe in Previous Post.

Devils Food Cake:
Makes 16 servings
(I multiplied the recipe by four and still somehow got around 100 cupcakes including the mini's)

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2.5 cups sugar
1.5 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup hot brewed coffee
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup veggie oil
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over hot simmering water, then remove pan from heat
Sift sugar, flour, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the hot coffee, sour cream, and veggie oil, gradually whisk in the eggs and stir in the chocolate
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until all are smoothly blended
Fill cupcake liners 2/3ds full and bake for 20 minutes or 15 for mini cupcakes.

Try 'em out! They were decadent!
