This week our sweet twins turned double digits! Yes, they are now 10 years old. Where in the world did the time go? I feel like day after say just slips through my hands.
I asked Nick and Luke what kind of cake they wanted for their birthday. I love making homemade birthday cakes and cupcakes! After searching through tons of recipes and pictures, they both wanted these Oreo Cookie Cupcakes. And let me tell you, they are SUPER easy to make.
NEED TO SAVE MONEY
ON YOUR GROCERY BILL?
- 1 vanilla boxed cake mix and the ingredients it requires (cooking oil, water, eggs)
- 24 Oreo Cookies
- 24 cupcake liners
- Oreo Buttercream Icing
- Maraschino cherries
Prepare the cake mix according to the box directions.
Line your cupcake pans with liners. This recipe makes 24 cupcakes, so you can do two pans at one time in the oven.
Next, place one Oreo cookie in the bottom of each cupcake liner.
Fill each cupcake liner 3/4 of the way with batter. I like to use a small to medium scoop like these to make it easier and less messy.
Pop them in the oven at the temperature instructed on the box for the amount of time instructed. Ours said to do 350° for 15 minutes.
Remove them from the oven and let them cool 100%.
Once they are cool, top with a heaping spoonful of Oreo Buttercream Icing and a stemmed Maraschino cherry.
Are these lovely, or what?
Perfect for kids, grownups, boys, girls, even a baby shower!
I love making memories like this!
This reminds me of the awesome recipes one of my favorite cupcake cookbooks that shows you how to reinvent cake mixes.
I love finding ways to make boxed cake mix better!
Enjoy your celebration! Our sweet boys had an amazing birthday with family!
