Happy Birthday Jeanne

My 3 college roommates and I got together last week for a dinner that was partly a belated birthday celebration for Jeanne (whose birthday was in September) and partly just a chance to catch up. Jeanne asked for some birthday cake so I decided to bring her cupcakes.

Remembering that she is a fan of the chocolate peanut butter combination, I got this blog post from Annie’s Eats out of my Google Reader. A chocolate cupcake, with a peanut butter filling, and peanut butter frosting. Yum!

The chocolate cake was a new recipe for me and when it came out of the oven, I thought the cupcakes were beautiful and I LOVED the way they looked. The cake was a little on the dry side for my taste, but I’m not sure how the peanut butter filling would have held up inside a more moist cake, so maybe this was perfect.

I really wanted to try the icing from Annie’s post, but it had cream cheese and whipped topping in it and I wasn’t going to be able to refrigerate these so I had to try a different recipe. I started with this recipe and altered the ingredients just a bit as described here. It was very good, but I still want to try the cream cheese one another time!
