Cookies 'n Cream Cupcakes - eta: made these, they are so, so good! After tasting the batter I omitted the cookies in the cupcake and I'm glad I left them out. The icing is very sweet but very good. The cake is stable, not too sweet, and can hold the weight of the icing. I got 12 large cupcakes, would def double next time. I have icing leftover but I don't have a piping bag so didn't use as much. Def a keeper, you should make these!! JMc
