Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream


I have been eyeing these for a few months now and finally was home one Sunday and decided to bake them just because!  They did not disappoint.  The mocha flavor in the cupcakes is very subtle, but the chocolate flavor is great.  The mocha most hits you in the espresso buttercream!  I piped on my frosting but using a spatula would work as well.  I topped them with Trader Joe’s Chocolate and Espresso Bean grinder.  Happy Baking!
