These cupcakes were requested for a birthday gift. I was hesitant to make them because I make all my cupcakes from scratch but the coconut pecan frosting I used on these is store bought. It’s too much work to make the frosting and the store bought tastes great. The cupcakes and chocolate frosting is made from scratch.
Finally, I got around to making this Oreo cake! I had made the cake layers in advance and frozen them. The layers are made with my Hershey’s cake recipe. The filling is made with an Oreo frosting. I had tried to use marshmallow fluff but apparently this should have been folded into the frosting because when I beat it in my mixer, it turned into a sticky gooey substance. I had to toss it out and star over.
This is an Oreo cake I baked 6 years ago! I used a box mix for the cake and store bought frosting. The center has an Oreo cookie filling which was made with vanilla store bought frosting and Oreo cookie crumbs. Now I bake all my cakes from scratch. I am baking another Oreo cake next week totally from scratch and hopefully it will look better with my improved piping and cake decorating skills.
This was my 1st time doing a cupcake grooms cake. I was hesitant to do it but it came out nicely. It consists of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. I used a plastic mold to melt candy wafers to make the toppers. The cake is all chocolate.
Although I prefer to make cupcakes, I must say I was very pleased with how these cakes turned out. A couple of friends asked me to bake these for their holiday dinners. I also baked cupcakes this week and was too busy or too tired to update my blog. Thanks to modern technology, I am blogging using a hot spot from my husbands phone while riding in our car to Virginia.
Carrot Cake -This carrot cake was so nice, moist and even colored that I didn’t want to frost it.
I also baked cupcakes and made cake balls for friends and for my family. I am taking 5 dozen cupcakes and 32 cake balls with me to Virginia. This may seem like a lot but I have a husband that likes sweets, two college boys, 2 brothers(both married with children), and 5 sisters. My sister-in-laws both have large families and all will be at dinner or stopping by.
