Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes + Coffee Buttercream Frosting

Nadia, Rachel, and I have been trying to have once a month “Bake Day.” The first one was held at my apartment and we tackled the deliciously rich Guinness Brownies. Our latest venture was held at Nadia’s in Queens. The photos were terrible – poor lighting – but watching Nadia expertly prep the cherries cross legged on the floor was something else.

In the end the cupcakes turned out great and now it’s Rachel’s turn to host and choose our next baking adventure!

Words cannot accurately describe the joy I experienced in watching Mindy Kaling live on stage at BookCon. However, I just found her talk with BJ Novak on YouTube (thank you Random House!) and hopefully you’ll enjoy her witty words of wisdom as much as I did.
