In the book (and movie), Matilda, has the ability to move objects with her mind, a power I sorely envied as a child. Honestly, I still envy it, particularly when I've just settled down with a warm Blueberry Banana Crumb Bar, only to realize that (*gasp*) I forgot. I decorated my cupcakes simply, reinforcing the already triple dose of chocolate with even more chocolate, including a border of chocolate sprinkles (hold the cupcake at an angle, and use a small spoon to gently adhere the sprinkles to the base of the piped frosting) as well as some chocolate twigs I picked up recently and have been waiting for an occasion to use! In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add sugar and brown sugar and mix.
