Day 2 of
I’m about to share a secret – are you ready?
I love cupcakes.
A few months back, I won a Babycakes Mini-Cupcake Maker from Christi at Love From The Oven. Since opening that box of joy, I’ve been baking mini-cupcakes by the dozen. Lots of dozens! I’ve even shared my creations with friends and family – young and old – to be official taste testers. I also made mini-cupcakes for my book club. I’ve not disappointed. Yet.
I’ll share another secret: I love cookie dough too.
Thanks to kevin and amanda, I made these uber-yummy and super-sinful beauties for the church’s Trunk or Treat on Halloween. I used kevinandamanda’s recipe for inspiration and “tweeked” it a bit to suit my cow’s milk allergy AND used a buttercream icing base for the frosting since I knew I’d be serving them outside. Plus, I didn’t scoop actual cookie dough in the bottom of the paper cups because my cupcakes were MINI-cupcakes and there just isn’t a lot of extra space! I also made vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing tinted orange. I took 50 individually wrapped cupcakes and the entire lot was gone within minutes. Fortunately, I also packed five gift boxes with eight cupcakes each (four of each flavor) to share with some special friends.
Before I went to bed, I had three emails thanking me for the cupcakes. One person exclaimed, “OH MY GOSH, Nicole!!!!! These cookie dough cupcakes are SOOOOOOOO good!!!!! Thanks for expanding my waistline!”
I also sent a box of cupcakes to work with Kevin with specific instructions: Give these to Neama and make sure he doesn’t eat them. These cupcakes are for Cameron.
C’mon, admit it….
You’re drooling on your keyboard.
