There were a few requests at the party for this recipe so here it is.  


Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Creme Filling and Dark Chocolate Frosting- Recipes by: Cupcake recipe by ming makes cupcakes #11  Dark Chocolate Frosting recipe by Beantown Baker (I used dark chocolate frosting instead of chocolate ganache)


Cupcakes:
1 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder (i used dark cocoa powder)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c butter
1 c sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
3/4 c milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix dry ingredients and set aside.  Cream butter and sugar on medium until light and fluffy. Turn mixer to low and add vanilla and egg.  Alternate adding the milk and dry ingredients.  Pour into lined cupcake pans. Bake for 20 minutes until a toothpick  comes out almost clean


Creme Filling:
1 stick room temp butter
2 1/2 c powdered sugar
1/4 c milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash of almond extract


Beat butter until smooth.  Add sugar, milk, vanilla and almond.  Beat until spreadable.  Use a knife to cut a cone-shape out of the top of the cupcake.  Cut the bottom off the cone, fill hole with creme and top with the remainder of the cone.
