MSC: S'mores Cupcakes

This month Mary Ann from Meet Me in the Kitchen chose Martha Stewart's S'mores Cupcakes.  If you haven't stopped by Mary Ann's blog you must do so!  She updates often and has a lot of good recipes. 

I made these cupcakes late last Wednesday night in preparation for a 5-hour workshop on Thursday at work.  I was happy to find that everyone really enjoyed them.  A couple of people even mentioned it was the best cupcake they ever had.  Maybe it's just me and I'm super critical of my own baking, but I didn't think they tasted that great.  The cupcake batter did taste like graham crackers and the frosting was practically a marshmallow so it definitely resembled a s'more, but it wasn't my thing.  I would rather have swiss meringue buttercream frosting and a light fluffly white or chocolate cake batter for my cupcakes.  It was also quite labor intensive, but a pretty presentation.  Thanks Mary Ann for picking this month's recipe - Kyle really liked them :)
