My best friend is getting married! In honor of that special occasion I threw her a party to celebrate with all our friends. She loves chocolate and vanilla cupcakes so I searched online for the perfect recipes. Joy of Baking had some good looking options for a chocolate cupcake and a vanilla cupcake that I decided to use.

More after the jump

Everything was very easy to put together and came out delicious. The chocolate cupcakes puffed up very nicely. The vanilla ones, not so much. For some reason they sunk a little in the middle. Can't figure out why, but they still tasted fine. I used the buttercream frosting recipe that went along with the vanilla cake recipe. For the chocolate one I chose to do a chocolate cream cheese frosting.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

1 8 oz package cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 C butter (1/2 stick) at room temperature
4 C sifted powdered sugar (You can decrease this amount if you don't care about it being as stiff for piping)
1/2 C cocoa powder

Mix cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy.

Mix in powdered sugar, one cup at a time.

Mix in cocoa powder.
