TwilightSagaFood: "Eclipse" Chocolate And Flaxseed Meal Cupcakes

Print  Friendly and PDF
I know, I am three months too late. Most of you know that I am a Twilight Buff. And that I am an ardent fan of the gorgeous vampire Edward. When Eclipse, the third novel of Twilight got released I so wanted to celebrate it in my own special way but it somehow didn't materialize. But its been on the back of my mind to add another entry to the other two "Twilight Eatables" in my blog -- Edward Cullen's "Twilight" Drink, "New Moon" Cheesy Crescents and this dark dark cupcake made with Rich Dark Cocoa and Flax-seed meal made the cut. Wicked!
This goes as an entry along with Cocoa Bread With Chocolate Chips And Walnuts,Chocolate-Strawberry Kesari,Cocoa Banana And Applesauce Muffins, Cocoa Pancakes, Cocoa N Saffron Vermicelli Pudding, Spiced Beet N Cocoa Muffins, Vegan Chocolate Banana Cake to "Chocolaty Dreams"
