Mocha Cupcakes with Kahlua Cream Cheese Frosting

Recently, quite a few of my friends are turning 21. Afterall, I'm a junior in college, it's supposed to be this year. 1989 to 2010 - we're all finally turning 21. First my boyfriend turned 21. Now more and more friend are turning the legal age to drink.

Peter and I, last spring

Since a dinner party was planned for him, 50 of us got together, ate dinner, and celebrated his birthday with him. It is my job, as always, to provide the desserts. I, of course, asked him what he wanted me to bake for him, and he wanted these mocha cupcakes. I was able to emulate most parts of the recipe, but I wanted to take some short cuts. Instead, I chose to substitute half of the grandulated sugar with brown sugar. I also just added 2 teaspoons of Kahlua to each can of Pillsbury cream cheese frosting that I bought at the store. Although it was not as strong of a Kahlua taste as I wanted, I still wanted the frosting to be able to be piped.



Check out the awesome carrier my friend got me for Christmas! Thanks Linda!
