Cupcake Craze

Lately I have been feeling very inventive and cupcakes for some reason are my expierement! These ones are what I'm calling Maple Brown Sugar Cupcakes:)
Maple Brown Sugar Cupcakes
Here's the recipe...Crust: 1c. oatmeal, 1/4c. butter, 1/4c. brown sugar, 1/2c. flour, dash of each: salt and baking soda, 2T. chopped pecans.
Mix together and press 1T. of crust into bottom of greased cupcake tin.
Cupcake mix: White cake mix,1/2t. vanilla, 1t. maple extract, 1/2c. cinnamon chips
Mix according to box directions, using butter in place of oil.
Frosting: 1/2c. butter, 1c. dark brown sugar, 1/3c. heavy cream, 1t. vanilla, 1t. maple extract,2 1/2c. powdered sugar.
In saucepan melt butter and mix in the brown sugar and heavy cream. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and add the extracts and powdered sugar, using a hand mixer. Place into a large storage bag, snip corner and pipe onto cooled cupcakes.
My taste testers!

Shane the picky one gave them 4 thumbs up!

I also tried these with yellow cake mix but everyone agreed that the white was the best:)

Funny Face;)

I took the night off to go to a movie with Lily and this is what entertained Bruce! lol He said that Kamdyn seemed to think this was great fun, when he saw the teeth coming toward him he would open wide! So cute even with those wacked up teeth!LOL
