Easy Chocolate Cupcakes

Baked these cupcakes for Elsa's social night in school. The theme was "Beach Party" and I thought of doing the frosting in something sunny and cheerful. With all the running around and dancing, they do need the sugar rush.... 

Easy Chocolate cupcakes
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Heat oven to 180 C.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and beat until thoroughly blended.
Fill muffin cups with batter and bake for 20 minutes.
Cool completely before spreading with frosting.

Buttercream Frosting
