Moist and chocolatey with buttercream frosting. Oh. My. Gosh.
I put a patriotic twist on these since Independence Day is almost here. I made the star cupcake toppers from burlap and scrapbook paper.
Here’s what I did:
Cut out whatever size star you want from this star template. For the paper version simply trace the star on the back of your paper and cut out. Using a hole punch, punch 2 holes and insert a stick through the star. I added a little twine bow too.
For the burlap star take 2 pieces of burlap and fuse them together with iron-on interfacing. Trace your star and follow the directions above. The interfacing takes care of any stray burlap threads and also makes the star stiff enough to thread the stick through.
This recipe is from my old, battered Betty Crocker cookbook that I received when I got married. I use it for tried-and-true, good old basic recipes. This Devils Food cake is simple and straight-forward with an incredible result.
