Chocolate Stout Cupcakes

I came across this recipe not so long ago and knew I had to try it.  It has cocoa, sugar, few more ingredients and BEER, yes I said BEER, GUINNESS to be exact.  All magically combined together and with a few twirls of a wand, voila you have a moist, chocolate cupcake with a hint of flavor that will keep others wondering what is in there.

2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purposeflour 
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch fine salt
1 bottle stout beer (recommended: Guinness)
1 stick butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3/4 cup sour cream 
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened at room temperature
3/4 to 1 cup heavy cream
1 (1-pound) box confectioners' sugar

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
2.In another medium mixing bowl, combine the stout, melted butter, and vanilla. Beat in eggs, 1 at time. Mix in sour cream until thoroughly combined and smooth. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet mixture.
3.Lightly grease 24 muffin tins. Divide the batter equally between muffin tins, filling each 3/4 full. Bake for about 12 minutes and then rotate the pans. Bake another 12 to 13 minutes until risen, nicely domed, and set in the middle but still soft and tender. Cool before turning out.
4.In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa, sugar, flour, baking soda, and salt.

To make the icing

In a medium bowl with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the heavy cream. On low speed, slowly mix in the confectioners' sugar until incorporated and smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use. Icing can be made several hours ahead and kept covered and chilled.

Top each cupcake with a heap of frosting and dust with cocoa.
