#29: Chocolate Malted Milk Shake Cupcakes

In September of 2009, I started a cupcake adventure. If you haven't read about it yet, you can do so here. ***

You're about to find out!

Yet again, I failed to remember to get my camera out at the beginning of the process (oops!) I did manage to snag a pic of the batter before it was all gone!

And as you can tell from the baked version, the batter contains little hunks of crushed up Whoppers!!

The only thing better than a Whopper cupcake, is an iced Whopper cupcake with a Whopper topper and a bendy straw!

Are those not just the cutest thing you've ever seen?! ((I can say that because it wasn't my idea...the cookbook author came up with it and I just followed along. hee hee))

They look even cuter side by side with their friends, who, despite being cupcakes, are more fashion-conscious than I am...at least they make sure their accessories coordinate with their outfit. :)

The best part was being able to share these with friends at Stephen and Melissa's housewarming party. Someone has to be responsible for balancing out all the healthy snacks, right?

That someone is me.
