These adorable owl cupcakes are Sour Cream Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Filling and Mini Oreos by Paris Pastry (click for recipe and more photos), via Flickr
I added Oreo Cupcakes to 2 polls already, but poll after poll, they didn’t win. I bought a bag of mini-oreos on sale and I decided to give the Oreo Cupcakes a try. It’s been a while since I did a fun design on a cupcake and I thought today would be a good day to do it again! The cupcakes themselves are chocolate cupcakes. You can use any chocolate cupcake recipe you like. I used Nigella Lawson’s Sour Cream Chocolate Cake (which is my favorite chocolate cake recipe) and converted it into cupcakes. The cupcakes have a cream cheese filling and a mini-oreo inside them. The cream cheese looks fantastic from the outside, but you can hardly taste it. You can taste the mini-oreo, but next time I might add two or three mini-oreos. Rating 5 out of 5.
