    Yes, next to favorite and comment there is vote button

    Is that a good hummmm or a bad one? :)

    Does anyone know how the voting process works for these contests? I was being asked how people who liked my instructable could vote on it and I have no clue.

    Do you have a picture of how the cupcake would look like on the inside, once it's baked? Thanks.

    You gave me an excuse to make them again as I didn't have a picture. :) Ideally, you'd hope the cream cheese was more in the middle, but here you go! Also, there's a difference in looks when it's fresh out of the oven like this one and when its been in the fridge.

    Thanks so much, Sarajo. Pictures does help. It looks like a crackly cookie, but in cupcake form. It does look delish!! I suppose the cream cheese makes the cookie more creamy? I will try to make this tomorrow. Thanks so much for your reply.

    Honestly, this second go round didn't go as well. First time around, I used a milk chocolate cake mix and the consistency was perfect. When the cupcakes were finished, the cream cheese filling was a perfect pocket in the middle. This second time around, all I had was a devils food cake mix. The consistency was not the same. It was much thicker and I even thinned it a bit.
