ready for the ovencooling & looking good enough to eat topped with leftover chocolate frosting

Recipe from Cupcakes! by Elinor Klivans.

MY NOTES: I let my eggs and sour cream come to room temp (as usual). The recipe originally says it makes just 18 cupcakes, but I easily got 24. I microwaved my unsweetened chocolate instead of using a double boiler to melt it. I reduced the sugar to 1 cup.
