Line the cupcake tins with paper liners. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
In a separate bowl add the eggs, whole milk, oil, and vanilla.
Add the bowl containing the eggs, whole milk, oil, and vanilla to the bowl holding the dry ingredients.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Take out of the cupcake pan placing on a wire rack until completely cooled.
Blue Frosting Recipe:
- 1 C soft unsalted butter
- 4 + C powder sugar
- 4 TBSP heavy whipping cream
- Blue gel food coloring
Cream the butter and powder sugar until it looks light and creamy. If it doesn’t cream add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it creams.
Test to see if the frosting can form and hold a stiff peak by taking a spoonful of frosting and turning the spoon upside down. If the frosting stays on the spoon it is ready if not then…. Add more powder sugar 1/2 C at a time…. mix well.
If ready scoop the frosting into a pastry bag with a large star tip.
Twist the open end of the pastry bag to push the frosting to the tip.
Holding the bag straight up and down frost the cupcake straight up and down.
