LiveSTRONG With A Taste of Yellow: Chocolate Cupcakes

It's the fourth annual LiveSTRONG With A Taste of Yellow, an event hosted by Barbara of Winos and Foodies. October 2nd is LiveSTRONG Day. As Barbara puts it, "It is through the LiveSTRONG presence, governments and corporations are made aware of cancer issues, not just in the US, but worldwide. Thanks to organisations like LiveSTRONG there are new treatments, new drugs, more research. event which supports and raises awareness for cancer issues worldwide".

For this event, the photo must include a yellow food and it must feature a heart in it. So, I decided to make chocolate cupcakes with lemon icing:

For the cupcakes, I used the Barefoot Contessa's Ultimate Chocolate Cake recipe. As always, it was moist and not too sweet. The icing recipe comes from this site. It reminded me of a cream cheese icing. StumbleUpon

I like the idea of lemon icing paired with chocolate.
