  Baking Oreo Cupcakes

so last week before i went to Penang , i decided to bake oreo cupcakes , in lieu with my close friend Zelyn’s birthday ! (which i will be blogging about next) :)

here’s the recipe i followed ! http://www.sweethartscakesandbakes.com/2012/08/cookies-and-cream-oreo-cupcakes.html


my ingredients pic , as usual :P and FYI , 3 packets of oreos are just the right amount ! no more , no less .


mixing up the dry ingredients …


wet ingredients !


adding the dry ingredients to the wet ones :D


and the batter is already halfway done !


crushed oreos and added them into the batter :D


put a whole oreo as the base of the cup …


and off to test-bake !


meanwhile …

scooped the batter into the rest of the cupcakes ! yay :D


the ones i test-baked turned out perfect !


and off the rest go ! :)


time to make the buttercream frosting :9


mix it all together and you know you get the best of buttercream ! i added a little more milk than the recipe indicated in order to get a creamier taste and texture :D


crushing oreos again . now , this part is extremely important as compared to the crushing-oreos-for-the-batter part . (i’ll explain why later) anyway , be sure to completely CRUSH the oreos so that there are no big particles left . if you have a food processor , use it .


and mix the crushed oreos in ! and done :D

let the cupcakes cool completely and finally it’s time to pipe the icing onto the cakes !


i chose the piping tip in middle . this is when the trouble started . my piping tip is very small with a diameter of approximately 2.5cm . and as i mentioned above , you have to make sure that all the oreo particles are crushed . unfortunately i didn’t have this piece of knowledge while i was making the frosting , so there were still small pieces of uncrushed oreos in my frosting . and my piping tip was tiny . in conclusion , the small bits and pieces of oreos kept getting stuck in my piping tip , making it impossible to get nice frosting :((


in the end i gave up and used a spoon to scoop the frosting onto the cakes .

the spooned ones :( but nonetheless still tasted equally good ! don’t judge a cupcake by its frosting :p

the one and only one with nice frosting !!! ITS A WONDER HOW I MANAGED IT .

overall !


and the shittier looking ones with failed frosting ahahhaa .


so i tasted one of the lousy cupcakes and it was magnifique ! :D

brought some for my friends and of course zelyn and here’s what they had to say !

quote from friend #1 : mouthgasm . best cupcake you’ve ever baked .
quote from Zelyn : it’s very nice and my sis loved it !
quote from Nicole : out of 10 , i’d rate it 9.5 . okay let me bring home and give my grandma , grandpa , sister etc etc hahaha
quote from Carmen : why the rest of the frosting not nice one ?


hahaha anyway these cupcakes were really fun and easy to bake + its yum yum in the tums ! :9 definitely one i would bake again :D
