Who is that? Owl Oreo cupcakes
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.
