Why I Love This Recipe
I can't remember which of my cupcake cookbooks I got the cake recipe from, but a friend gave me the recipe for the frosting and said, "Here, create a cupcake around this!" No problem, I LOVE anything coffee. These were for a ravioli party I had and they were gone in minutes. Enjoy!
