Okay my lovely Cupcake Hero Crew, I know I am doing things out of order here. You are all on the edge of your seats waiting for the Next Cupcake Hero. We are diligently working on a winner for Cupcake Hero: Earth Day. Life has been busy here at cupcake headquarters. But, I wanted to let you all know what the theme is for May. Ya know, so you can get your bake on… I am so totally stoked about this theme. I picked it months ago because May is my birthday month. Granted my birthday is at the beginning of the month, but.. no matter. Jaos and I celebrate our 7th Anniversary at the end of the month. May is a good month for us.
The theme for May is…
The theme for May is Cocoa Powder!
Now, before you start asking.. No, you do not need to bake with Askinosie Cocoa Powder. (Although, bonus points may be given to those who do…) You may use whatever cocoa powder you have on hand. However, Askinosie is my personal favorite and the only kind I use now. I strongly advise you to give it a try. Come on, you know you want to. Jaos and I both love it. I refuse to buy anything else now. You will not be disappointed. If you are a Hershey’s user, there is no looking back once you try this cocoa powder.
Next, I beg of you to be creative with this theme. Of course we will take any entries you guys bake up. With that said, go outside your comfort zone. Think up something new, exciting, different. Take cocoa to a new level.
You know the rules…
The theme ingredient must be used in either the cupcake, the frosting, the filling or all of the above if you choose. If you want to participate, send me your cupcakery to CupcakeHeroStaff AT gmail DOT com by May 31.

This month the theme is Cocoa Powder! Cocoa Powder must be used in the cake, filling, frosting, or all if you are feeling froggy.
Prizes this month kick ass, if I do say so myself. Askinosie Chocolate is going to provide a prize for the winner AND feature the winning recipe on their website. Does it get any cooler than that? No, no it does not. Many thanks to Shawn at Askinosie for being such a huge supporter of our cupcake cause.
