1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups of sugar
Beat well, then add:
Add 2 large eggs
2 Teaspoons of pure vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 1/2 cups of flour

Beat well, fill cups, and bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes. You should get 24. I 18, so don't worry if you don't get 24 either.
Lisa's Chocolate Mocha Icing
1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa
3 tablespoons strong brewed coffee
Whisk together the sugar and cocoa. Add coffee and whisk until smooth.
Spread over cooled cupcakes.
This icing hardens up fast, so make sure your cupcakes are cooled and ready when you make it.
