Chocolate Mocha Cupcakes /Chocolate Mocha Cupcake with Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting

After a long time I am sharing a Baking recipe, I did not bake anything recently and even not interested in baking. But when we friends planned for the Virtual Birthday Treat for Priya, decided to bake any recipe sweet or savory from her space. Since Priya loves baking and also her space is loaded with lots and lots of baked goodies, from sinful delight to healthy bakes. I have bookmarked many recipes too. As a part of her Virtual Birthday Celebration we planned to try her Baking recipe, preferably a Chocolate based ones. Since we know she love chocolates and anything with chocolates are her most favorite. So I  picked her Chocolate Mocha Cake and tried as a Cupcakes with Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting.
