Chocolate Cupcakes w/ Chocolate Frosting

So today I decided to try something new! Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate buttercream frosting.

So I started with the dry ingredients...
Sugar, flour, baking powder, unsweetened cocoa, salt
And I put it all in a bowl and mixed the dry ingredients together.

I then added the wet ingredients...
Eggs, whole milk, vegetable oil, 1c of boiling water

The cups were all set to be filled... oh the anticipation!

The batter was mixed!

And poured...

And all set to go in the oven!

For the frosting:
I melted some semisweet chocolate morsels over a double boiler and whipped it with some unsalted butter to make the frosting and...

Viola! Ready to eat!

I wasn't super happy how it turned out. I got impatient and didn't add my wet ingredients at room temperature. :/ (I know... not good). But It was still chocolatey and yummy.

What new recipes have you tried lately? Anything I should try?
