Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting

Every year on my birthday, I make my own birthday cake. I honestly enjoy it. It's the one time a year I pull out the fondant and attempt to get creative with my decorating. The only thing is that I spend all year making everyone else's birthday cakes or cupcakes as well. So one of these years, I hope I'll be able to not spend the night making cake in the kitchen but still get to enjoy some cake made by a loved one on my birthday.
A girl can dream.
These cupcakes were made in a hurry one morning when my mom remembered a co-worker's birthday was that day and asked me to whip something up. I've had this recipe bookmarked for a while and decided to give it a try. They were definitely a hit!
