  2. Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to cake batter and mix well.
  3. Spoon cake batter into prepared cupcake liners and pan. Fill cupcake tins no more than half full. Spoon 1 teaspoon of filling on top of the batter in the tins. Cover filling with a tablespoon of batter. Your tins should now be 2/3 full.

I tasted the batter and the spices were evident and even a tad bit spicy. After baking it however no one could tell there was anything different about these cupcakes from just plain chocolate cupcakes. I did not use the frosting and this review is ONLY on the cupcakes not the frosting. I had my family taste these cupcakes plain without frosting first. I used some homemade vanilla boiled frozen and thawed frosting and added a few pinches of the cinnamon and cayenne. I'm gonna keep trying this concept but with a different recipe.
