Celebrate National Chocolate Cupcake Day the Right Way!

October 18th is National Chocolate Cupcake Day! As if we need an excuse to celebrate the deliciousness of chocolate cupcakes, right? But with so many variations out there, how do you know which type of chocolate cake is right for your celebration? Let’s break down the different types of chocolate cupcakes and how to make sure you’re celebrating this special day in style.

Types of Chocolate Cupcakes

There are a few main types of chocolate cupcakes that come to mind when we think about this special treat. Of course, you can always just buy a box mix at the store and follow the directions on the back. However, if you want something a little more special for your celebration, here are some yummy options:

  • Devil’s Food Cupcakes – This classic option consists of cocoa-infused sponge cake with a creamy chocolate frosting. The richness from the decadent cocoa powder makes it a great choice for National Chocolate Cupcake Day.
  • Mocha Cupcakes – If coffee and chocolate are your thing, then mocha cupcakes are the way to go! These treats combine espresso powder into both the cupcake batter and frosting for an extra kick.
  • Red Velvet Cupcakes – This type of cake is traditionally made using cocoa powder and buttermilk to give it its unique flavor and texture. This one often features cream cheese frosting on top as well.
  • Molten Lava Cakes – For these special cupcakes, a warm chocolate center oozes out when bitten into providing extra deliciousness in each bite! These molten lava cakes are best served warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Yum!
  • Salted Caramel Chocolate Cupcakes – A combination of sweet and salty flavors make these salted caramel cakes truly unique and unforgettable. They feature light and fluffy chocolate cake topped with creamy caramel buttercream frosting along with bits of sea salt for added flavor complexity.

No matter which type you choose, National Chocolate Cupcake Day is definitely worth celebrating! So be sure to grab your ingredients from the store or head over to your favorite bakery to get some deliciousness before October 18th rolls around. Happy baking everyone!
