Copy Kat Hostess Cupcakes

This is a cake "mother goose" always made, moist, chocolate, easy, so you can double the ingredients which will make a 9x13 inch pan. 

Mother's Chocolate Wackey Cake
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup wesson oil
1 1/2 tsp  vinegar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cups water
Mix all the dry ingredients then make a well in the powder and add the oil, vinegar, vanilla and water.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. I got 12 cupcakes.

Filling was a basic confectionary frosting. I used a pastry bag with a large decorator tip and squeezed the frosting into the center of each cupcake.  You could also use a knife and cut out portion of the cake and fill.  I then used a basic chocolate frosting with confectioners sugar and frosted lightly the tops of each.  Then using a smaller tip on the pastry bag I used the filling and make the curly Q's
