Two excellent cupcakes: vanilla and chocolate

This is for tomorrow. I want to make two kinds of cupcakes for a gathering of mostly adults. They must be excellent. I'm thinking the classics: one vanilla with white frosting, one chocolate with chocolate frosting. Both the cake part and the icings need to be wonderful. I have ten zillion recipes to choose from but, of course, I'm asking Chowhounds. Hand over your best, please.

Nothing overly "healthy" need apply. It's only a cupcake.

      1. I don't make cupcakes but do have favorite chocolate and vanilla cake recipes you could use. As chocolate frosting goes, I like Rosie Berenbaum's milk chocolate buttercream.
