Holiday Cocktail Party Cupcakes

These are chocolate cupcakes I made for a holiday cocktail party--of course everything was gluten and dairy free. Last week was quite a bake-athon for me. I made 70 cupcakes for the party. 20 more for my son's holiday party. Lemon squares for my daughter's holiday party, a cake for the son of a family friend (who isn't gluten free) who told his mom he wanted my son's cake for his party, AND cupcakes for another friend who had a family emergency and needed some gluten free cupcakes. I enjoyed it all but it was a lot at once--even for me.

For the cocktail party I also made:
spring rolls with an asian dipping sauce
chicken satay
pigs in blankies
guacamole & a warm black bean dip with corn chips
vegetable platter with cucumbers, red peppers, carrots and celery

lemon squares
Betty Crocker chocolate cupcakes with Chocolate "Buttercream" Frosting
