How Do I Modify a Cake Recipe to Make Cupcakes Instead?

Good Questions

Q: I am making Nigella's Chocolate Guiness Cake for a St. Patrick's Day tasting party on Friday (so I'm making it Thursday night), and I want to make mini cupcakes instead of a whole cake. How do I modify baking time to make mini cupcakes from a cake recipe?
