½ C. Cocoa

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp Salt

Combine above ingredients in a bowl. Add:

¾ C. Vegetable or Canola Oil

2 Tbs. Vinegar

1 Tbs. Vanilla

2 C. Cold Water

Whisk until smooth

Put cupcake liners in cupcake pans. Fill each ¾ full with batter. Bake fat 350 for 16 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely. You can use this batter in a 9x13 or two 9” rounds.

Posie Cream

1 C. shortening

¼ C. Butter, softened

3 C. Confectioner sugar

1 ½ tsp Vanilla

1/8 tsp Salt

Yellow food coloring

Red food coloring ( optional)

Mini chocolate morsels for decoration

yet another look at the frosting technique!

Cream together shortening and butter. Beat in sugar, vanilla and salt until light and fluffy. Add yellow food coloring to get the desired color. May add a drop of red food coloring if desired for a deeper color

To decorate, put a dab of icing in the center of each cupcake. Use a frosting tube with aleaf tip. Leave a space in the middle for the mini chips. Pipe seven leaves around the cupcake, then seven more, overlapping the first circles of leaves, carefully fill the center with the mini chips
