These cupcakes were made to celebrate the birthday of a big fan of the warriors. They are vanilla and chocolate cupcakes topped with butter cream and chocolate frosting. I made the toppers using Avery labels and tooth picks.
This basket has red velvet and chocolate cupcakes. The toppers on the chocolate cupcakes were made using the Russian piping tips I purchased from Amazon after seeing them on Pinterest and YouTube. The hardest part is getting the frosting to the right consistency. Once that is achieved, the piping isn’t hard at all. I am still working to mastering the different types of flowers.
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.
Each year I try to modify the designs for my cupcakes. Sometimes I find that using only sprinkles and candy toppers can make cupcake decorating very festive.
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.
I missed posting these when I made them because I took them with me to my son’s graduation. Thanks to an app on my phone the picture was sent to me in the daily history alert.
- 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.
