Cookie Dough Cupcakes with Milky Way Frosting

I know they're a mouthful to say
But they're also a mouthful of enjoyment!

They are yellow cake with a cookie dough ball inside!! Topped with melt in
your mouth milky way frosting.
You can find the cupcake recipe here and the frosting recipe here.
Check out this You Tube video for a great tutorial on Milky Way Frosting.
To keep the cookie dough from baking along with the cupcake
you first freeze the cookie dough balls. The cookie dough recipe
does call for eggs. I'm not sure that's the best idea since the cookie
dough doesn't get cooked through... so I omitted the eggs and used a little milk
to get the right dough texture.
When you bake them the cake batter rises right up around the
frozen cookie dough.
Then the frosting... oh my, I could eat it all by itself!
It is very rich and decadent so I only piped on a small amount.

Powdered whole eggs work very well with cookie recipes. Just add the egg with your dry ingredients, but the water (to reconstitute it) to the wet ingredients.

Powdered whole eggs are already pasturized, so snitching is recommended.

This works particularly well when you want to make your own cookie dough icecream!
