Sprinkles Cupcakes is coming in Summer 2008!  here  I cannot tell you how EXCITED I AM!  I’m soooo there – like, “open, open, open” with my face to the glass window.  I checked out their cupcakes menu of flavors and my mouth was drooling.  Hmmm…choices….I’ll have one…of EACH, thank you.    Oooh, oooh, look what I found!

Dark Chocolate FrostingFrom the owner of Sprinkles Cupcakes, a delicious dark chocolate FROSTING that will make your cupcakes stand out! 

 Frosting ingredients: 
  • 10 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 lb. unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 1 lb. 8 oz. powdered sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Melt and cool chocolate (until just slightly warm). Beat butter until light and fluffy. With mixer on low speed, gradually add powdered sugar. Add salt, vanilla and sour cream and mix until very smooth. Add chocolate and mix until just incorporated. *Don’t over-whip and add too much air into the frosting. The consistency should be rich and dense, like ice cream!
