Cupcake Brownie Cake

I made this cake for my best friend's 18th birthday. The end result was actually a mistake but it came out really well. My friend loves chocolate so I decided to make her a chocolate fudge brownie cake. I had decided that alone it looked a bit plain so I made some cupcakes as well and the end result is in the picture.


Eight cupcakes were placed along the edge of the cake inside wells(about1/4 in deep) I made with some drinking glasses. In the center I placed one cupcake without making a well so it stood out above the others. Butter cream frosting was a good complement to the dark brown of the brownie and went well with the vanilla cupcakes as well. Frosting was placed only on the sides and edges of the cake and the sides were covered by cookie crumbs.

Just looking at my description it seems like more work than it actually was. The only time consuming thing about it was putting on the cookie crumbs on at the end. The absolute last thing though is melting some chocolate chips and haphazardly drizzling them over the cupcakes and frosting on the edge of the cake (not necessary but makes a big difference in the appearance).
