I baked these Sunflower cupcakes for another of my best friends. She is truly the modern flower child, complete with flowing blonde hair down to her waist and yellow Volkswagen Beetle embellished with flowers. She once told me that her dream was to run through a field of sunflowers. I couldn't give her that, but I came as close as I could. The cakes were Devil's Food, with a base of dark chocolate frosting. The bright yellow petals were vanilla buttercream, and mini chocolate chips formed the center of the flower. She ate four in one sitting. That is why I love her.
