These were made for my mom's Marketing class. She's been working on a group project of developing a marketing plan for my imaginary cupcake business (which will not come to fruition until I at least get some business classes and cake decorating classes under my belt, so don't get too excited), and asked for something to sample during their presentation. So, I made mini chocolate espresso cupcakes with mocha buttercream, and topped them all with a chocolate-covered espresso bean. They were a hit.
I got both the cake and frosting recipes from Allrecipes.com.
