Get ready for chocolate cinnamon cup cakes that are rich, smooth and so creamy that they melt in your mouth. You can make them for the Super-Bowl or for a special Valentine in your life. They are fun to decorate and kids will love them!

You might even want to make them for a special birthday. My 2 year old granddaughter started singing Happy Birthday to ME when I gave her one of these cupcakes, (even though her birthday is in August). She thinks that if she gets a cupcake that is decorated so pretty, that it is for her birthday!

If you wanted to change it up a bit, you can add 1/2 cup cocoa powder to the frosting and have chocolate, on top of chocolate. So no matter how you decorate these, you will get a thank you, and smiles.

Making Your Chocolate Cinnamon Cup Cakes Beautiful:

Isn’t it so funny how things just taste better when they look beautiful. That is, until you take a bite of something that really doesn’t taste good. That is not the case with cinnamon chocolate cupcakes. These look beautiful and they taste so good.

Some Food Presentation Tips That I Have Received Through the Years:

  • Half of the joy of food is the way it is presented.
  • Always put out a place mat to put your plate on.
  • Add a pickle on the plate beside your sandwich.
  • Add some color.
  • Garnish when appropriate.

  • If you do not have buttermilk, I measure out the milk, and add a Tablespoon per each cup of milk.
  • I also have used coconut oil or even avocado oil in place of the vegetable oil.
