This coming weekend my blog is turning two! I can’t believe that I have been blogging for two whole years. Time has flown by and I like to think that my baking skills have improved a lot! I made my first post on March 25, 2010. Sadly, the first three post I made in blogger didn’t survive the transition to wordpress.
I love birthday cupcakes so to commemorate my blogs birthday I used Oreo 100 birthday cake cookies baked inside funfetti cupcakes.
I feel like I struck the cookie lottery getting my hands on a bag of these! My sister brought them from New Hampshire to give to me in Spain. They’re well traveled! They went from New Hampshire to Boston to Miami to Madrid to Sevilla and then on to their final destination, London.
I love funfetti. It has it’s own special smell that’s a whole other level compared to vanilla cupcakes. I wish I could find funfetti perfume but then I’d probably end up thinking about cupcakes more than I already do!
I made my #2 topper by dipping a birthday cake Oreo in some blue candy melts. I wrote the 2 in glitter gel and then poured the rainbow sprinkles on top.
I used a funfetti cupcake mix, which made 6 cupcakes. I put one spoon of batter into the liner and placed the Oreo in and then placed another spoon of batter on top. I made half of this frosting recipe with some vanilla paste and no food coloring.
Happy Birthday and I can’t wait to see what year three brings!
