I have way overthought this already, so I need some guidance, please. I'm hosting a baby shower and I want to make cupcakes. I would like to have a white cake, a chocolate cake, a chocolate frosting and a vanilla frosting (I'm also making red velvet mini cupcakes, just for variety).

I've found the cake I want to use for the white cake (White Chocolate Whisper cake) and I've found a vanilla buttercream that I like (a modified version of sugarshack's).

I've already made most of the fondant decorations for the tops (the baby face flowers - or something like that, I can't remember what I called them when I posted the pic asking for suggestions and criticism on them), and I've made about 60 cupcakes today looking for the right flavor...I tried a buttercream with flavored coffee creamer and I really didn't like that, sooo, anybody have a great chocolate cake and frosting that everyone loves every time?

Thanks so much!

Scratch or doctored boxed mix?

There are lots of members here who swear by Scott Clark Wooley's chocolate cake (scratch - in the forum archives - it was posted in a thread). And then there are those here who really love the Darn Good Chocolate Cake by the Cake Doctor (boxed mix - in the recipe file).

Thank you, Theresa, I'll go with either scratch or doctored. I'll check out both of those you suggested. Thanks again!

I have found Sue B's Chocolate cake a winner every single time (CC recipes) for both cakes and cupcakes. People rave about it and can't believe it's from scratch. It is also a very easy cake to make. Hope this helps. icon_biggrin.gif

I use the killer chocolate cake recipe on here and it's delicious. I often pair it up with Buttercream Dream.
