I feel like I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve covered all the basics on my blog, so it’s time to start thinking outside of the box. This isn’t crazy outside of the box, I’ll give you that. But I thought cookies and cream cupcakes sounded cool. It reminds me of the ice cream. Plus, the frosting looks just like the ice cream. With the half cookie on top, it kind of reminds me of an ice cream sundae.
I am officially posting recipes that I am making currently. Throughout the school year, I post recipes that I make over my breaks. However, over the summer I usually get to bake more often, so I post recipes as I make them. However, this summer I have a 9-5 internship, so it will be harder to get posts up. I can bake on nights, but photographing will be difficult. Hopefully I’ll still have plenty of posts though.
So, I made these cupcakes yesterday. I can vouch myself that they’re delicious. Plus, they’re fairly easy. It’s just a simple chocolate cupcake frosted with cookies and cream frosting and topped with half an Oreo cookie.
I’m also really excited for July 4th. One, because I spend it with my cousins and I love visiting them. Two, because we spend most of our time there in our bathing suits lounging on the patio and swimming. Three, because of the July 4th themed desserts. I love making desserts themed for holidays. Christmas, Valentine’s Day, July 4th, you name it.
So if you’re getting bored of your run-of-the-mill chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, give these cookies and cream cupcakes a try. You won’t regret it. Happy baking!
