Banana Cupcakes with Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting

I made these cupcakes for a gallery show that I was in for my art. I made a bunch of desserts and this was one of them. Unfortunately when taking a picture my camera's battery ran out and I didn't have my charger with me. So I am using a standard banana cake recipe pic. This is how I set up my banana cupcakes. I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do. I love banana cupcakes.
