Adorable Lamb Cookies

Life has been so super duper chaotic lately.  If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook you’ll see that I have been super quiet there.  These adorable lamb cookies make me happy and I really hope you love them too.

In early April, I was in a massive (for me) car accident where I was rear ended on the highway.  I had to bring my car to a quick stop because the cars in front of me were stopping.  The car behind me was still going full speed and plowed into the back of me.  The car behind that guy didn’t slow down or stop either so I got hit a second time.

The two impacts caused my body to be thrown back and forth in my seat and my head to hit the headrest repeatedly.  An ambulance came and took me to the local emergency room.

The doctors there ruled out a spinal cord injury but they did conclude I had a concussion.

Also,  my car was totaled… but that’s a story for another day.

For the weeks following the accident, I suffered through some of the hardest days of my life personally.  I’ve been able to handle a lot when it comes to my husband, kids and family… however when it came to dealing with my head injury, it was a lot harder to deal with.

Thus my blog, my work, my life needed to be put on pause then reset.

Fast forward a few more weeks and here I am.  Not back to 100%, I probably never will be, but back to a point where I can type, write, and begin to think about the future.

This recipe is not an original, but it is one that I think you’ll like.  You’ll be seeing more of these kinds of posts for the foreseeable future because I just need the time to heal.

I know you’ll understand… because if you’ve gotten this far into my post… you’re a loyal JavaCupcake fan and you’ve always been there for me.

Adorable Lamb Cookies

Adorable Lamb Cookies

Ingredients

  • 6 oz. white fondant
  • Black gel food coloring
  • ½ cup cornstarch, for rolling
  • 12 Oreo cookies
  • 2 cups white candy melts
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 24 candy eyes
  • 12 Sprinkles (Circle-shaped – they will act as the lamb’s nose)

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. Begin by preparing your fondant shapes: add 3-4 drops of black gel food coloring to your fondant and fold and knead until completely colored. On a surface lightly dusted with cornstarch, roll out your fondant to be about ¼ of an inch thick and cut 12 small circles. These will be your lambs’ head.
  3. Shape smaller pieces of your dark grey fondant into tiny oval shapes. Make 24 of them: these will act as your lamb’s ears.
  4. Microwave your white candy in 30-second intervals until completely melted. With a fork, dip each Oreo into the candy and set on your lined baking sheet.
  5. Place one circle-shaped fondant in the center of each Oreo cookie. Sprinkle your shredded coconut on each one.
  6. Using a toothpick, apply a bit of white candy melts on the back of each fondant ear. Gently place on each Oreo cookie.
  7. Apply the candy melts on your candy eyes and your sprinkles. Apply on face of each lamb.
  8. Allow to set for at least 30-45 minutes.

Mocha Cookies and Cream Cake

This post has been sponsored by Coffee-mate® Creamer. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Rich layers of espresso filled chocolate cake topped with whipped cookies and cream buttercream, a drizzle of chocolate ganache and more buttercream make this Mocha Cookies and Cream Cake a decadent dessert sure to please the chocolate lovers in your life!

Imagine a quiet afternoon with no kids, no distractions and and hour to yourself.  Now, imagine holding a big cup of steaming, hot coffee topped off with Coffee-mate® Cookies & Cream creamer while seated comfortably on the couch under a cozy blanket with a big slice of cake to indulge in.

Sounds like heaven right?

Let me tell you… it was.  This was me about two weeks ago, right before my kids were home for 13 days (snow days and spring break) enjoying a few cherished moments of silence.

Feeling inspired by my new favorite Coffee-mate Dessert Creamer in the Cookies & Cream flavor, I decided to recreate the magic of that afternoon in cake form.

mocha cookies and cream cake on a stand with a bowl of cookies

However in order to make this Mocha Cookies and Cream Cake I needed a recipe!  I knew I’d start with my chocolate cake recipe, but I needed to kick it up a big notch by adding more espresso to the batter to really bring out the coffee flavor.

Two tablespoons of espresso powder to be exact!

Two tablespoons of espresso in one cake means there will truly be a strong coffee flavor to the chocolate cake making it mocha-licious!

The Coffee-mate® Cookies & Cream Creamer reminds me of what it tastes like when I eat a chocolate cream sandwich cookie and dunk it in milk.  I like my cookie extra soaked in milk so it gets mushy and melts in my mouth and the Coffee-mate Cookies & Cream creamer tastes exactly like that… but with coffee!

To replicate the cookies and cream flavor for the frosting in the Mocha Cookies and Cream Cake, I decided to start with a basic vanilla buttercream recipe.

I would whip the vanilla buttercream until it was light and fluffy and then fold in 16 crushed chocolate cream sandwich cookies!  The cookies would need to be a little chunky so when I bite into the frosting, I get a piece of cookie in several bites.

To add some pizzazz to the cake, I knew it needed to not only taste good, but it needed to look spectacular!

Drip cake! Yes! Chocolate ganache dripping down the sides of the cake would take this mocha cookies and cream cake over the top!  Swirls of cookies and cream buttercream and a few whole coffee beans on top make the cake perfects!

For supplies, I knew I only had one choice of stores to stock up on supplies for this sinfully delicious Mocha Cookies and Cream Cake… Walmart!

What I love about Walmart is that the location in my neighborhood is so close to me making shopping incredibly convenient!  Walmart is my go-to place for easy shopping trips,  especially when I’m on a budget.

Did you know that you can get Coffee-mate Dessert Creamers in three different flavors at Walmart?  They’re super easy to find at the store… located with the rest of the coffee creamers in the cold dairy section.  These creamers are NEW and only available seasonally so if you want to try them, you have to act fast!

You already know I’m sold on the Cookies & Cream flavor but there’s also Toasted Marshmallow Mocha and Coconut Caramel Latte that you won’t want to miss out on either.

And on May 10-13th you might even be lucky enough to try Coffee-mate Dessert Creamers in your local Walmart store!

  5. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in wet. Using a whisk, stir until no more lumps remain.
  6. Divide the batter evenly into the 2 prepared pans. Each pan should get 3 cups of batter.
  7. Bake 26-28 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing from the pans to cool on a wire rack.
  8. Once the cakes have cooled, but are still warm, use a cake leveler to cut off the round mound on the top of the cake. Make sure both layers are the same height.
Cookies n' Cream Buttercream
  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and half the cream until smooth.
  2. Mix in the vanilla and salt and mix to combine.  Scrape the bowl.
  3. With the mixer on low, add the remaining cream.  Whip on high speed for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Crush the sandwich cookies until coarse.  Add to the buttercream and mix until just combined.
Chocolate Ganache

  2. Place the second layer on top, cut side down.  Fill in the sides where the layers come together so that the frosting in the center extends all the way to the edge.
  3. Spread a very thin coat of frosting over the entire cake.  Chill for 20-30 minutes.
  4. Fill a 12in piping bag fitted with an open start tip with frosting.  Use the remaining frosting to completely cover the cake.
  5. Use a straight edge to smooth out the top and edges of the cake.
  6. Using the squeeze bottle, start in the center of the top of the cake and squeeze the ganache in an circular pattern until it just reaches the edge of the cake.  Use a flat edge (spatula or knife) to press the chocolate over the edges causing a drip.  If necessary, squeeze more chocolate on the edges in places that need more dripped chocolate. Allow to set for 10 minutes to set.
  7. Pipe swirls of frosting on top of the cake equally around the edge of the cake.
  8. Garnish with coffee beans.

Candy Cane Oreo Cupcakes

Rich chocolate cake baked with chunks of holiday OREO cookies topped with whipped peppermint buttercream loaded with candy cane chunks makes my Dairy Queen Blizzard inspired Candy Cane Oreo Cupcakes the perfect holiday treat!

Candy Cane Oreo Cupcakes | The JavaCupcake Blog https://javacupcake.com

No, I didn’t get paid to make these cupcakes.  Instead, inspiration hit me at a time in my life when I thought baking wasn’t a passion anymore… that I was burnt out on cupcakes.

Last week, my family and I were watching TV and a DQ commercial for candy cane oreo Blizzards came on and I said WOAH that sounds delish.  No naturally we went to DQ to try them and of course they were delicious.

Candy Cane Oreo Cupcakes | The JavaCupcake Blog https://javacupcake.com

I had not felt inspiration to bake something new in 10 months.  This feeling was strangely familiar but it somehow felt different, but I knew I had to see it through to the end.

So, I went to the grocery store, bought all the supplies (can you believe that the candy canes were hard to find?!!) and scheduled a day to bake.

Candy Cane Oreo Cupcakes | The JavaCupcake Blog https://javacupcake.com

The DQ Blizzard has big chunks of candy cane and OREO in it, so I knew I wanted my Candy Cane Oreo Cupcake to have the same.  I started with my dark chocolate cake recipe and filled it with pieces of OREO.

Next, my traditional whipped buttercream got kicked up a notch by adding peppermint extract and tons of crushed candy canes to it.

Candy Cane Oreo Cupcakes | The JavaCupcake Blog https://javacupcake.com

I couldn’t decide how I wanted to garnish these cupcakes, so I did it a few different ways.  All of the sides were lined with crushed candy canes and some were topped with an OREO chunk, crumbles or a candy cane.

The peppermint chocolate combination is one of my favorites for the holiday season and these cupcakes do not disappoint!

Happy Holidays!

OreoCookieSandwiches-1438

The last two years have been pretty rough on my wife.  Because of my combat PTSD and everything that comes with it, my wife has had to endure some things that no wife should ever have to deal with.   The effects of war reached far beyond me to my wife and children.  However, Betsy did deal with it.  She stood by me… every day.

I started with a package of MEGA stuffed Oreos and my wife’s recipe for perfect chocolate chip cookies.  In the chocolate chip cookie recipe, we replaced the chocolate chips with crushed Oreo cookie pieces.

Red Velvet Oreo Cupcakes

Don’t be fooled, these aren’t your average red velvet cupcakes.  These Red Velvet Oreo Cupcakes are made with an entire pack of Red Velvet Oreo Cookies and topped with a decadent cream cheese frosting.   The ultimate in red velvet goodness!

Red Velvet Oreo Cupcakes | The JavaCupcake Blog https://javacupcake.com

Earlier this week, I shared the recipe for the pipeable cream cheese frosting that top these cupcakes.   I knew that I had stumbled upon something amazing with that frosting so I wanted to share it separately from the cupcake recipe.

These Red Velvet Oreo Cupcakes begin with a traditional red velvet cake base but are brought to the next level with the addition of red velvet Oreo cookies!

Red Velvet Oreo Cupcakes | The JavaCupcake Blog https://javacupcake.com

If you love Oreos and you love red velvet cake, then this cupcake is for you! Seriously… it’s so good.  I am not a red velvet fan or a cream cheese frosting fan.  However, these two together in one cupcake was something special.  Seriously special.

Emily asked if I’d make it for her birthday… in December!  Ha!

The cupcake liners are Gold Bake Bright liners from Sweets & Treats Boutique.  Don’t they look amazing on these cupcakes?  When I moved from Germany to Virginia, I reorganized my entire baking cabinet and tossed out all the liners that weren’t from STB!  I love them THAT much!
