S'mores Cupcake

So many things to bake, and so little time.
To be time efficient, I decided to bake these cupcakes a day before the baby shower, but then the baby was born today, and the baby shower tomorrow? So no baby shower, but now I'm left with cupcakes.
Oh well, these cupcakes came out amazing though. <3>
I, obviously, was inspired by this.

Cupcake portion:
1 ½ cups of graham cracker crumbs
½ cup of flour
2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
½ cup of butter, softened
¾ cup of sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoon of vanilla
¾ cup of soy milk
12 oz bag of chocolate chips

In a small bowl combine the crumbs, flour and baking powder; set aside.
Beat the butter and the sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add the vanilla.
Alternately add flour mixture with milk, beating well after each addition.
Add in chocolate chips and mix well.
Divide the batter into two muffin tins lined with 22 cupcake liners total.
Bake at 350F degrees for 22-25 minutes or until done.
Cool in pans for 5 minutes.
Remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack.

1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
7 oz. tub of marshmallow cream, 2 of them
Cream the butter on high until it's light and fluffy.
Add the confectioner's sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, and beat until fluffy each time.
Beat in the vanilla until incorporated.
Then dump in the Fluff and mix it up 'til it's all creamy.
Transfer to pastry bag and pipe onto cupcakes!
Garnish with graham crackers and Hershey's chocolate.
Here are some different ways to do so.
Put them all together!
