Cupcake Bites = FAIL

I came, I saw, I Tried and got frustrated.
I made 10 measly cupcake bites... and they were quite ugly.
So ugly in fact that I decide not to torture them anymore and eat them before anyone could see.
So now i have 30 balls of cake in my freezer in tupperware... and will wait for a night where I can be PATIENT and try again. 
On the bright side, they still tasted smashing.
Bakerella is my hero... one day I hope to made pretty little treats as perfect as hers!
P.S. Above picture are the best 2 out of the bunch! I was so proud of these 2 little cupcake bites that I wouldn't let anybody eat them!
P.P.S. putting the candy mold in the dishwasher is a very bad idea. btdt...

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcake

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcake
I used a Vanilla cupcake recipe and added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the batter. This made 12 large cupcakes, next time I can get 15 or 16 out of the batter. I think these are too large! The butter cream is a really simple butter cream frosting, just 3 cups of confectioners sugar, 2 sticks of butter, and a tsp. of vanilla. (I also added a pinch of salt) I topped it with some semi-sweet chocolate chips and they were good! They taste just like a homemade chocolate chip cookie.
