Fantastic cholocate cupcakes

At the moment I am really into artisan cupcakes, and my husband's favorite has coffee frosting, but I was not impressed or happy with the actual cake in the finished product. (No offense Paula Deen, love you). For years I have made a cake known as a "sheath" or "sheet" cake. To me, this is the best chocolate cake by far. I tried this recipe for cupcakes,and they came out deliciously wonderful just like the cake. I changed one ingredient of the cake - the water - to a cup of strongly brewed coffee.
Then I iced them with Paula Deen's coffee buttercream which I tweaked with instant coffee.
