Oreo Cupcakes | Munchies

1 11 2011

I fell in love with miniature Oreo cupcakes a couple years ago at the Cupcake Smackdown.   I’ve always wanted to make them so I finally decided to do it.  Turns out they are super simple and you can make them a ton of different ways.

You will need:

*White cake mix

*Vanilla Frosting

*Miniature Oreos

First I placed a couple handfuls of Oreos in a plastic bag(easy clean up)

Then I got a little country.  I didn’t have a mallet so I used…a hammer to break up the cookies. Yep, a hammer.

Then I made  the cake batter as instructed by Pillsbury.

When the batter was nice and smooth, I added the cookie crumbs.  I found it better to use more cookies but you can add to your taste.

I poured the beautiful batter into the cupcakes wrappers, about 3/4 full.  Then baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes.

While the cupcakes were cooling, I got the frosting ready.  I mixed in the cookie crumbs.  Then I used a plastic bag as a make shift pastry bag, all I had to do was clip the corner.

And to top it all off I placed a miniature Oreo cookie on top.

Ta-dahh!  On some I used plain vanilla frosting, sprinkled them with crumbs and topped them with a cookie.  I prefer the cookies mixed in the frosting though.

Give it try!  Let me know what ya think!

Lazy Sunday

2 09 2009

I started playing around with flowers the other day.  I was loving the shadow they cast on the wall.  I could control the afternoon light with the drapes and the shape of the shadow with a twist of the vase.  My favorite is of the shadow alone.  It seems to have its own presence even though it’s simply a silhouette.
