My family are huge soccer fans; the World Cup is a very big deal in my home. I just had to make some German Chocolate cupcakes in honor of my favorite European team (and ancestral heritage). I think they were good luck charms, because Germany won!
My husband made the German flag toppers while I baked. Thank goodness our daughter has lots of construction paper laying around! They were the perfect touch -- no one could mistake which team we were rooting for that day.
I'm a little obsessed with filling cupcakes. My daughter likes it, too, because she usually gets to eat (most of) the cored-out cake.
The filling. I could have skipped the cake and just eaten this with a spoon.
