Oreo Cupcakes

When my friend Sylvia first told me of Oreo Cupcakes, I was thinking, “Who would want that???”

Well, everyone wants it!

I made them for Sylvia’s birthday back in September and I decided to make them again for a bake sale.

I used this recipe

OREOS

Chopping the oreos was a pain because I’m not pro yet.

I put the oreo halves in the cupcake liners…

Filled them up…

And baked!

I used the frosting included in the recipe. It never came out “light and fluffy”

It was still a good frosting recipe. It just wasn’t pipeable 😦

Also, I kept eating the cookies so I didn’t have enough to garnish in the end.

Until next time!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Filed under: Cupcakes — cupcakingandbreadmaking @ 4:55 pm

I just recently tried my first Red Velvet Cupcake. I still can’t determine what it actually “tastes” like. I remember when I was younger, the dyed color kind of freaked me out. But this past summer, I decided it was time for me to try something red velvet.

I instantly loved it. I’m not sure what about it I love, I just know I do.

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and my school had a walk. We were also selling cupcakes to raise money and I decided to make red velvet  cupcakes. I attempted to make them pink… but it didn’t work out 😦

The color turned out more red-brown:

Baked and ready to be frosted!

Frosted and ready to be sprinkled 😉

Wooo!

I know they don’t look the best because I was too lazy to pipe them. But I used cream cheese frosting and the cream cheese wouldn’t smooth out completely 😦

But the cupcake tasted good overall.

I’m not sure if I will use this recipe again, but I did like it.

I also forgot what recipe I used…

But I do remember I used butter, not oil.

I can’t wait to make red velvet cupcakes next time!
