Reese turns 1 right around Thanksgiving time, so her party was pumpkin themed!
I got to make the smash cake!
Poor Reese got burned on her candle while everyone was singing to her, so she was terrified of her cake from that point on.
Mama had to cut it up to give her some, at which point all was again right with the world. :)
Happy Birthday Reese!
I made cupcakes for a friend for her wedding. The theme of the wedding was “Til Death Do Us Part.” Quite perfect since it was the weekend before Halloween! All decor and attire was black and white. Very stunning! It was fun to get to make them and be there to enjoy their special day too!
The cupcake liners I purchased from The Tomkat Studio Store and from Fancy Flours.
I made white cupcakes with Golden Oreos in the bottoms and Golden Oreo frosting.
The other half were chocolate cupcakes with regular Oreos in the bottoms and in the frosting.
Me being a non-chocolate gal, I of course picked a Golden Oreo cupcake at the wedding. YUM.
I used 8 packages of Oreos. I made my husband buy them for me because that’s pretty embarrassing. Oh, and I only use Double Stuft, cuz duh.
These are SO easy to make. And who doesn’t love Oreos? I’ve been buying a lot of Oreos lately. You’ll see what I mean later this week.
Twist Oreos open, and push sticks into the Double Stuft filling. Add a dab of candy melts, then top with the twisted off cookie.
Pop them into the fridge to set up. This only takes a couple minutes.
Then dip the Oreos into the candy melts, making sure to fully cover.
I melted a second color to add a little drizzle, but sprinkles would look great too!
I covered the regular Oreos in purple and the Golden Oreos in orange. Obviously these were for Halloween, but they are so easy to make that they could be any color and perfect for any party!
These are a twist on the Cookies & Cream Truffles I made a while back. This time I used Birthday Cake Golden Oreos.
1 full pack of Oreos crushed + 1 brick of cream cheese (I use the 1/3 less fat kind). Mix it into a dough, chill, roll, chill, dip, sprinkle. Then chill until it’s time to enjoy!
These are pretty rich, I could only handle 1 at a sitting.
My brother came to town. I promised him treats while he was here, and this was first up.
The cake is just plain-Jane vanilla. But the frosting is what’s special. It’s FULL of Oreos! I made my normal buttercream recipe, and added half a package of crushed Oreos. Why just half a package you’re wondering?
…because the other half was a little busy… Being baked into the bottom of the cupcakes!
I also made mini ones without the Oreo in the bottom. Because I only had 1 pack of Oreos, and half of them went into the frosting. Plus, mini cupcakes go further when sharing. Which my coworkers appreciate. :)
These cupcakes were kind of a trial-run for a wedding this fall. One of the them was taken to the bride and she approved!
