    Hi the recipe seems great, but I live in the uk. What is copha please? I have never heard of it.  -  02 Apr 2018


    I'm honored to give the first review of this fabulous recipe! These cupcakes were simple to make and came out so moist and flavorful. I ended up with 30 of the best cupcakes I've ever had. My family and coworkers called them fabulous but I call them evil....cause I can't stop eating them! I used the Chocolate Frosting 1 recipe that I found on this site. I highly recommend this one, you won't be disappointed.  -  26 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
