Small Batch Lilac Chocolate Cupcakes

This recipe is perfect for Mother's Day. It makes six devil's food cupcakes that are not overly sweet, which means you want to use a good quality cocoa because it is what sings here. A light brush of lilac simple syrup keeps the cake extra moist and renders the sweet scent of the beautiful flowers into something edible.
