Chocolate Cupcakes for Super Bowl party.

Today is the 50th Super Bowl day, the Broncos are playing the Panthers. Broncos is the underdog and thus, we are rooting for the Broncos and Peyton Mannings. As I have to bring a dessert to the Super Bowl party and thus I decided to make cupcakes. I am making chocolate cupcakes with eggless merginue frosting. Unfortunately my frosting is not a success but I am still using the frosting as I don't want to make another batch of frosting. I am using mini vanilla wafer (ok these are stored bought vanilla wafer - save time making separate cookies) and decorate the vanilla wafer to look like footballs as an added touch since this is Super Bowl Football ... what FUN :)

1/2 cup Hershey unsweetened cocoa powder 
1/2 cup water
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter (1 stick) room temperature
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature, separated
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream

Mix together cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, baking powder in a bowl.
In mixer, beat egg white for a min or 2 and gradually add in 1/2 cup of sugar, mix till mixture forms a stiff peak, set aside.
Cut butter into 1 cup of sugar in a bowl.
Mix into butter mixture egg yokes, mix in vanilla.
Fold in butter mixture sour cream.
Alternate flour mixture and water into butter mixture..
Fold in egg white.

Line 24 regular size muffin pan. Scoop batter evenly divided to the muffin pan.
Preheat oven at 350 degree.
Bake cake for 18-20 mins.
Cool and frost cupcakes.
Store cupcakes in fridge until ready to serve.

Here are pics of the finished cupcakes.
