Being out here in Germany has its disadvantages. As a baker, the lack of access to seasonal and special products that my favorite companies make is a huge disadvantage. So when Oreo celebrated it’s 100th birthday with special confetti cake flavored Oreos I BEGGED my friends back home to send me some. Luckily, one fantastic friend (CARRIE!) sent me TWO packages of these special cookies!
So, into my cupcakes these cookies went. I made a basic vanilla cupcake batter, added a birthday Oreo to the bottom of each cupcake and filled the batter with funfetti rainbow sprinkles. I then topped the cupcake with a basic vanilla cream cheese buttercream topped with more funfetti rainbow sprinkles and a birthday Oreo!
Simple. Cute. Delicious.
PS… I was in a hurry and didn’t bring my eggs and milk to room temperature and didn’t bake them quite long enough, so my cupcakes didn’t rise like I wanted them to. :( Bummer. Make sure yours are room temperature and be patient!!
