Cupcake Friday

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

I don't make cupcakes very often, but a while ago I ran across a few cuppy recipes that looked absolutely delicious! I decided to have a "Cupcake Friday" and spent most of the day testing recipes...

Oreo Cream:
These were very good. The cream cheese filling along with a mini Oreo cookie was a great combination.

 Cookie Dough:

How can you go wrong with cookie dough? Make sure to roll small balls of cookie dough and freeze them overnight. Add the frozen dough to the cupcakes right before you put them in the oven. This way the cookie dough won't cook when you bake the cupcakes.

Coconut Macaroon:

I love anything coconut and these were no exception. Just like the cookie dough cupcakes, you need to freeze small balls of macaroon filling and add them to the cupcakes right before baking.

Chocolate Strawberries & Cream:

I had extra cream cheese filling left over from the Oreo cupcakes, and some strawberries were waiting in my refrigerator. So I decided to stuff some cupcakes with strawberries and cream. Not only did they end up looking fantastic, but the taste was absolutely to die for! Yummy!


  1. OH my goodness, these look awesome.
    One ? though. Why do you have to freeze the cookie dough and other filling before baking?

  2. Hi Susie,

    Welcome to my blog, it's great to have you aboard! I freeze the filling because it keeps the cookie dough from melting and dispersing into the cupcake. It's an easy way to keep the batter a cookie "dough" consistancy. This technique also works well with many other types of fillings.
