That Chocolate Cupcake

I know, it's been a really long time.  In my defense, I work for Yahoo! and things have been weird so I've been doing a lot more work type stuff.  But, this Memorial Day weekend, I've been visiting a lot of family and friends and have been making some goodies.

I decided to use the chocolate cake recipe from Essence of Chocolate: Recipes for Baking and Cooking with Fine Chocolate and edit it into cupcakes.  So here's my version:

Stacey's That Chocolate Cupcake with Strawberry Fan Ingredients:
2c granulated sugar, organic
1c unbleached white flour, organic
3/4c whole wheat flour, organic

1/2 c sunflower oil, organic

1/4c boiling water

Frosting / Ganache Ingredients:
