Chocolate Cookie Dough Cupcakes

As I said yesterday, during my family's clam bake this weekend, we had a cupcake war! This year was actually the "second annual" although last year it was pretty weak with only three entries. This year there were 8, so I think that is pretty impressive!

There were two categories, taste and presentation. I won for presentation, but not for taste.... but I still think mine tasted A-MAZING and DELICIOUS and I wanted to share!

I made Chocolate Cookie Dough Cupcakes that I found on Pinterest. They had cookie dough inside and were sooo yummy!

{inside the cupcakes cookie dough goodness :)}

I decorated mine a little bit different than the actual cupcakes though. I made the same frosting as in the recipe, but I put blue food coloring in half of it to make it look like water and kept the rest tan to look like sand. Then, I made a beach scene. It came out really good! I used honey teddy grahams, little drink umbrellas, gummy lifesavers, airheads, and mini gumballs to make the accessories.

It had sun bathers, beach balls, towels, umbrellas, floaties, swimmers, and even a kayaker! Super cute.

{the pictures aren't the best, but I hope you get the idea!}

The winner for taste was actually E! I couldn't believe he won! He made imitation Snow Ball cupcakes. His were good...but I don't really think they deserved a win (shhhh). My niece won second place for her candy bar cupcakes and I think she should have gotten the win!!

Maybe next year!! Do you have any favorite cupcake recipes??
