I will have to confess first about how I got this recipe. I was riding with two other coach's wives to the last out of town football game. When we got back to town one of them left some magazines in the vehicle saying she was just going to through them away. Well I scooped them right up because I saw this recipe and was really excited to try it. Whew! Don't you feel better already? Now on to baking. I actually baked the sweet potatoes the night before and kept them in the fridge until we were ready to bake. Xavier is my ever ready baking assistant and quality control expert. He found this particular batter to be fantastic. I think he actually liked the batter better than the finished product.
The cupcakes turned out so well and this chocolate frosting was wonderful!
I won't even tell you how much butter the whole thing required. It was just worth it.
