Chocolate Cupcakes

When I saw these little cuppies at Hearty-Bakes' which were so evenly and beautifully baked, you wished you could reach for one of them.

In fact these cuppies were very soft and good but I just don't know why they have so many poked-marks under my hand.  Sigh .... I dont mean to make them ugly so I tried to do a little make up by dusting some snow powder to cover the marks. 

You may want to pop over to Hearty-Bakes to take a look at her lovely bakes.
