Devils Food [cup]Cake with Peanut Butter [and Nutella] Frosting [sms]

This week's SMS, Devils Food Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting, was chosen by Holly of Phe/mom/enon.

This recipe was so amazing. It was pretty easy to whip up - at 10pm for the next day. I had made these and brought these to the event last weekend down in Southern California. I put them in nice boxes and in the car with me the whole time.

Nice boxes with cupcakes in them!

I had topped these cupcakes with both a peanut butter frosting as suggested by the book and a nutella frosting.
I just made half of the frosting and 1/4 of it, I put peanut butter in until I felt like it was spreadable and pipable and same with the nutella with the other 3/4. It was pretty easy to make and super sugary and yummy!

The nutella ones I just piped and put sprinkles on. Simple is often best.

The peanut butter ones, I decided to go crazy with. I had promised my friend these Mouse in the House Cupcakes which was just a cute way to decorate cupcakes, so I made them that way. Super simple and super fun!

I think regardless of the decorating technique, both were successes. I really enjoyed this week's SMS and baked them super early meaning that I have more time to bake other things. [aka use up the pumpkin puree that I have]
