Frosting:  Use purchased chocolate fudge frosting and then decorate with sprinkles and decorations.

Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, salt and soda.  Add oil, water, vinegar and vanilla and beat well.  Fill lined cupcake holders 2/3 full.  Blend cream cheese with egg, sugar and salt.

This recipe comes from my very first “real” boss at my first full-time job at a stock brokerage company in downtown Denver.  She was a very professional woman and taught me to come to work, ready to work, and give 110% each and every day! (Plus she make these killer cupcakes!)  ~Vicki Adrian
