BIRTHDAY CUPCAKES

With birthday cake (shown below), comes birthday cupcakes! What's a party without cupcakes? In addition to the cake featured below, I made cupcakes for all the attendees of Jana's birthday party. After all, the cake was solely intended for Jana's tummy and I didn't want to make her guests envious.
So, I brought these: a bevy of vanilla cupcakes with alternating chocolate buttercreams and vanilla/chocolate swirl buttercreams each topped with a different theme. I used leftover batter from the cake recipe below this post as well as Billy's chocolate buttercream.
Here is what I came up with...
Thin Mint Cupcake: Vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream topped with chopped thin mints, mint drizzle, and a whole thin mint cookie

Peanut Butter Brittle Chip Cupcake: Vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream topped with mini chocolate chips and a shard of homemade peanut brittle
Chocolate Oreo Cupcake: Vanilla cupcake with chocolate/vanilla swirl buttercream topped with Oreo crumbs and a Chocolate Cream Oreo

M&M Cupcake: Vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream topped with mini M&M's and a red sugar icing drizzle

Peanut Butter Coffee Cupcake: Vanilla cupcake with chocolate/vanilla swirl buttercream topped with peanut butter drizzle and a chocolate covered coffee bean

Chocolate Brownie Cupcake: Vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream topped with chunks of Dorie Greenspan's Katherine Hepburn brownies and a white chocolate drizzle
