So this guy had a birthday last week.
(And this was the best picture I could get of him in his Easter best. Two year olds have a mind of their own I tell ya.)
I can not believe my baby is two! I know people say it all the time, but seriously time does fly. I swear I had him just yesterday. Sigh.
Anyways, this little baby, ahem, I mean toddler of mine loves (and I mean LOVES) Oreo cookies.
So what better cake to make for him than a cookies and cream cake, or in this case, cupcake?
He loved them! He must have had at least 4!
Happy birthday Rawson! I love you bud.
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 cup milk
- 3 eggs
- ⅓ cup oil
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 block cream cheese, softened
- 1 pound powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 36 Oreos, plus more for decoration
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Line 2 muffin trays with cupcake liners or spray with non stick baking spray. Mix together cake mix, milk, oil, and eggs. Beat well for 2 mins. Chop up 18 Oreo cookies finely. Stir into the batter. Scoop a scant ⅓ cup of batter into each muffin well. You should be 24. I got 22. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cake springs back when touched. Remove from pan and cool on wire racks.
- Beat together the butter and cream cheese until fully incorporated. Add the vanilla and the powdered sugar a cup at a time. If the frosting is too sweet, add a little pinch of salt. Chop 18 Oreo cookies really finely. Stir into frosting. Frost the cooled cupcakes and decorate with additional cookies if desired.
I piped the frosting onto the cupcakes using a big 1M tip, but the cookies still got stuck in the tip. Next time I will use an ice scream scoop to scoop it on or make sure to chop my cookies very finely so they don’t get stuck.
