Chocolate cupcakes ~ Pretty in Pink


for a Friday birthday at work


Everyone at work LOVES chocolate and it was my turn to bring in the goodies for a birthday celebration today.
I knew my friend would love
her chocolate dressed in pink with "polkadots" 
and diamond sprinkles on top.
A little something sweet for all my sweethearts out there

{sharing something pretty for Friday Pretties at Joyce's blog
and something pink for Beverly's How Sweet the Sound ~ Pink Saturday post}

The recipe I use for chocolate cake or cupcakes at King Arthur Flour blog.
I've used this one for years! 

Have a wonderful weekend my friends

Happy Pink Saturday Maria Sweetie...
What a beautiful share. I love your cupcakes and the cupcake papers look absolutely divine. I am sure your co-worker was so thrilled to see her special design.

I love the pink frosting with the mini chocolate chips. I would have to try one of those. So devine.

And how PRETTY these lovelies are! You displayed them perfectly pretty too, Maria. The liners, that shade of pink or better yet salmon, the sprinkles, it's a match made in heaven!
Your pictures are all ready to be added as well to the website of the Altamont Cafe!!
I think your weekend is off to an exciting and great start, isn't it?
Enjoy a glorious weekend, Maria! xxxx
