Sadly, these all went right out the door, as often happens at my house (it’s a sad place sometimes, what with only a lingering whiff and a sprinkle or two to document the estwhile presence of baked goods). These were sacrificed for a good cause: the Student Council fundraiser at my daughter’s school.

If you’re in the mood for cupcakes, here are my favorite dark chocolate and yellow recipes, as well as a frosting I just love:
