Banana Split Cupcakes

I had quite a few friends that came into town around the 4th of July, and I decided they needed cupcakes. There were a few recipes I wanted to try, and one I'm always happy to revisit, and in my planning process, I realized I had a banana split of cupcakes.
I adapted a few of the toppings. I think these would be fun for a summer party.
For the three 'scoops' I used:
Chocolate Sundae Cupcake
(I used chocolate icing, with a little white icing on top to look liked whipped cream, and drizzled some chocolate on top.
Strawberry Cupcake (the filling is good from this idea, but the cupcakes didn't stand up to the test because they were too soft to hold a lot of weight (I don't know what test, but trust me, it would have failed any test), so this friend didn't get her cupcakes, just my company (sorry, Nicole...on both accounts ;o))....I need to work on this cupcake recipe before sharing more than the filling)
(I used some red gel to look like sauce, and a strawberry slice for topping.)
Banana Cupcake from yesterday's post.
(I added some chopped peanuts, and a banana for topping.)
