2 Cakes; 1 Buttercream – Part 1: Moist Chocolate cupcakes with Tart Raspberry Buttercream

I have a confession to make. I love my best friend’s Fresh Tart Raspberry Buttercream recipe. It tastes absolutely amazing. I have used it to fill French Macarons and I’ve had it on top of sweet vanilla cakes.

But those are both light and simple flavors. I wanted to taste them with something equally complex. I wanted to taste something rich to complement the tart.

I was a little worried that this would be a little bit of a clash, but it turns out, the richness of the moist chocolately cake paired perfectly with the tart raspberry.

Best Friend Brownies

I have a best friend and she is beautiful, sweet, sophisticated, sassy and little nutty. Everyone has that best friend.

These brownies remind me of her.
