I decided that I couldn't wait until tomorrow to post pictures of my "tombstone cupcakes." I can't claim the idea as my own; I was inadvertently inspired by some Martha Stewart cupcakes (I'd seen tombstone cupcakes before, but didn't know where). Since I was already stealing Martha's ideas, I used her recipe for the frosting.
The cupcakes are devil's food with chocolate icing (because it's Halloween, and I like chocolate). For the frosting, I heated heavy cream, then poured it over semi-sweet chocolate chips and stirred until it was all mixed together. After I iced the cupcakes, I dipped them in Oreo cookie crumbs so that they'd have that "freshly dug grave" look (just like the ones your mom used to make). For the finishing touch, A and I made little tombstones out of Mexican coconut cookies and stuck them on top. Here are the results:
I finally have one of my digital cameras working - I think you should be able to click and enlarge the pictures if you'd like.
