Berry first try - Vanilla chocolate chips cupcake

Not the first time baking, but first time using an oven to bake cupcake.. Normally I use air fryer and toaster to bake cookies and once try cupcake on toaster(was totally a failure!!)
Finally Hubb agreed to buy mi an oven, not those atas oven, at least it able mi to start my interest in baking..
I berry excited and happy

Even the most picky M say it tastes good.. (Only without the frosting cupcakes!)
But my piping/frosting technique failed badly.. 
Thanks to all the photo filters, dun looks that bad isn't it...?
Not sure why did the frosting so runny, so hard to pipe.. 
Lesson learn: Follow recipe exactly 100g means 100g, no more no less even it is just 100.1g..

I just dun wish to end it that way.. 
Decided to bake again the following night and followed just exactly...
It turned out pretty good even the frosting/piping turn out well and I'm satisfied with the outcome...

Of course, I had a wonderful Hubb who support mi all the way, he even praised the ugly cupcake ..
Thank you Hubb, at least this give mi strength to continue...
Love you..
Isn't it beautiful!!!
