TWD: Cocoa-Pecan Marbled Cupcakes with Dulce de Leche Buttercream



Another week, another Thursday. This week was different though: this week I attended my brothers graduation! He finally finished college and is now officially graduated as a journalist! So I baked this weeks recipe especially for him.
Congratulations Harm!!



Erin of When in Doubt...Leave it at 350 picked Mocha-Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake for this weeks TWD recipe. I used Pecans instead of Walnuts and cocoa instead of the coffee, I also turned the bundt cake into cupcakes and to make them extra special I topped them with Dulce de Leche Buttercream.



Go check out Erin's blog for the recipe. Find out what my fellow TWD-ers thought of the bundt cake here!

By the way, what language is this? It reminds me of German, although it obviously isn't. Dutch perhaps?
