Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream Frosting

I dedicate this to my kids, from whom I have learnt a lot..they have taught me how to be patient for hours together while doing an interesting job, they have taught me how to be energetic and enthusiastic the whole day. I am also trying to learn how to be happy for no reason at all from them :) They also amaze me by being very forgiving in nature. They forget insults so easily. So in a way they are my true teachers..:)
The buttercream frosting had strawberry flavor in it and it went really well with the chocolate flavoured cupcakes. My 3 year old daughter was very excited to help me with the decoration. I gave her choco chips and sugar sprinkles to top the cupcakes, and did a good job- finally licking her fingers off ! Sweet little delights for my sweet little devils...They just loved it and even licked the cupcake liners!!
