|Hot Crab Dip Served with Corn Chips.|
Low and behold, Mickey Thienes, also know as Henderson, Kentucky's "Herb Lady", mailed me a old and fascinating recipe for a Yeast-ed Chocolate Cake and a Black Chocolate Cake. Had I already not baked a "Devil's Food" cake and "Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes" for our party I certainly would have plunged into one of these recipes and will certainly do so in the very near future!

NOTE: Katie requested these specific cupcakes instead of a regular birthday cake this year. The name of the recipe can be typed into the finder box for the recipe as is the case with any other mentioned.
