1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons (2-1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 box (1 pound) confectioners' sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup milk

Beat butter and sugar in large bowl for 2 minutes, until light colored and smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. On low speed, add flour mixture, alternately with milk. Divide batter among liners, a scant 1/3 cup in each.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 19 minutes or until toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean. Remove cupcakes to a rack; cool completely.
Beat confectioners' sugar, butter and milk in medium-size bowl until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Tint with desired food colors. Spread about 2 tablespoons frosting over each cupcake.
