Homemade Cupcakes

This morning I rolled out of bed at 9, only that early because I had to run to the store to get a few extra ingredients for the homemade cupcakes I wanted to make today. Most of the day was spent cooking for our BBQ and baking! For the first time EVER, I made cupcakes and frosting from scratch! I thought they werent going to turn out very well, but I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out PHENOMINAL!!! I made Chocolate chip cookie cupcakes with brown sugar/vanilla frosting. I topped them off with some mini chocolate chips and a mini chocolate chip cookie :) Everything but the chocolate chips and the mini cookie was made from scratch, and I must say I am really proud of myself! I got lots of compliments on them, which made my day! I cant take all of the credit though--my amazing KitchenAid mixer was the real workhorse of this project and mixed up all of my ingredients with no problem :)
So without further ado........

Not bad for my first time making them totally from scratch, huh?? Have I mentioned that I really love my mixer?? Because I do. I really really do.
The BBQ went really well, we had some good times with some good friends and good food! I'm hoping we have another get together really soon :)
Tomorrow, we are planning on sleeping in and doing a whole lot of nothing all day long! I dont want to clean, do laundry, or even come out of my pj's to be honest! I may make some cookies though.....
Goodnight everybody!!
