Birthday Cupcakes

Today is my mom's Birthday, and I made her some cupcakes :)
They are double chocolate cupcakes with piped chocolate icing - I used a #18 frosting tip.
I also made whoopie pies and small chocolate chip cookie sandwiches - inside was frozen whipped cream.
Some of them were topped with melted, white chocolate O's.

Whoopie Pie!!
YUM!!!

sexypoet-- The playlist.com doesn't have the James Taylor version! I dunno why, and I'm pretty bothered about that..but John Denver is my mom's fav singer from when she was flower child--so I thought on her b-day, a John D. acoustic version was good to go with...but I LOVE the James Taylor, and I can't believe they don't have that version on there--I should complain or something :)

Sweetnothin'-- I got the recipe for the cupcakes at:
http://www.joyofbaking.com/ChocolateCupcakes.html
--I added some dark chocolate to the icing recipe to make it darker and not quite so sweet--just substituted dark choc for half the unsweetened stuff.
Toppers: For the whoopie pies, I just spooned quarter sized bits of cupcake batter on a cookie sheet-be sure they're 2 inches apart and that the cookie sheet is LIGHTLY greased- and baked for 8 minutes.
Mine came out not as "puffy" as the ones I've seen--they came out flat and I dunno why...
The o's are white chocolate I melted and put in an icing squeeze bottle and piped onto WAX paper(very important!--the white chocolate melts quickly too, so u gotta put it in freezer until serving is close.
The small cookie sandwiches are filled with either whipped cream or chocolate frosting.
:) I hope I helped!! :)
