Cookies and Cream Dream Cupcakes

A new year, time to try new things! I got some new cook books in the last few weeks and found some amazing recipes I wanted to try. This is the first one. It is a chocolate cupcake with a whole Oreo baked inside with a Cookies and Cream butter frosting to top it off. The frosting is amazing, but the cupcake is just okay. The cake wasn't as moist as I wanted it. So I tried another chocolate cake recipe with it and was even more disappointed.....I'm not saying I didn't eat it still, but I've had better cake. But I have many more, from scratch, chocolate cake recipes to try! And I will keep trying until I get it right!
This is one that my "taste testers" LOVED....even if I wasn't thrilled with the whole thing. I will be putting this on my dessert list soon. I would really like to put a better cake with it first, but I will make it for you if you just "have" to have it before then.

Now stop drooling on your keyboard! ;-)

Christmas Craziness!

The holidays were crazy busy around here as I'm sure they were for most of you! I helped do about 24 of these Christmas Sampler Platters to pass out for one of my most beloved customers, my mom! She picked up some cute plates from the dollar store along with these big gift bags to cover them up with. They turned out really cute.

There was a fun selection of fresh goodies on there too. She had Cheesecake Brownies, Mint Brownies, Sugar Cookies, Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies and the 3-in-1 Cookies. These will be an option this coming Christmas Season......either me providing just the goodies, or the whole she-bang! You'll decide! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Season!
