Mocha Cake with Mocha Cream Cheese Frosting

Another Ellie, The Food You Crave! Page 282. Don't they just look delicious? If you are looking for a super sticky sweet dessert though... this isn't for you. It's described as the chocolate cupcake from your childhood all grown up. The frosting is really not sweet at all, it has a nice intense espresso flavor, almost a bit bitter, so if you like coffee, you'll like these... if you want total sweet... I'd skip the frosting for sure. The cupcake was ok... but nothing amazing, unfortunately, ... but they sure do look pretty :)

Ooohh these are from Ellie Krieger?? No way! I don't remember seeing these in my book. I tend to like the super sweet desserts but I might have to give this one a try for comparison!
