Yummy Yummy Cupcakes

Have you visited Java Cupcake?  If not, you totally should.  She has great recipes.  And who doesn't love cupcakes?!  This weekend I made some cookies-n-creme cupcakes using her recipe.  They turned out awesome!  The kiddos loved them and hubby ate about six of them in one night.  Yeah, he was a little hyper!  The recipe was really easy to follow.  The cake part was moist and delicious.  The frosting was AMAZING!  Seriously, you must try these out.  An added bonus is that you have to crush up the Oreos so you can get rid of any frustrations by beating them with a rolling pin.  I was able to make 36 cupcakes from this recipe...however, 6 of them met an untimely end when I dropped them taking them out of the oven...

Here are some pictures I managed to take before the kiddos and hubby devoured these scrumptious cupcakes...

Don't be laughing at my awesome icing skills...

I was supposed to decorate the cupcakes with some crushed Oreos, but I kind of ate too many of them to do that.  I also thought that sticking a mini Oreo on top would be cute, but we didn't have any of those.  I'm planning on making these again sometime, so maybe next time I'll do that.

Now, wipe the drool off your chin and go visit Java Cupcake for lots of other recipes and general cupcake fun!

Just so you know, I received nothing for writing this.  I simply came across this blog a while back, decided to try out one of her recipes and loved it so much that I thought it would be plain ol' mean of me if I didn't share :)


  1. I stopped by to let you know you have an award waiting for you at

    But, your post is also perfect timing since I need to find a great cupcake recipe for my peanut's bday (to bring to school)...can't wait to check it out!

  2. Yum!!! I probably would have eaten 6 of those in one sitting too.


Comments?! Yes, please! I'll return the love.
