I tasted the batter and the spices were evident and even a tad bit spicy. After baking it however no one could tell there was anything different about these cupcakes from just plain chocolate cupcakes. I did not use the frosting and this review is ONLY on the cupcakes not the frosting. I had my family taste these cupcakes plain without frosting first. I used some homemade vanilla boiled frozen and thawed frosting and added a few pinches of the cinnamon and cayenne. I'm gonna keep trying this concept but with a different recipe.

These are very sweet and sugary.
