For those of you who have ever talked to me online at around 10am on a weekday morning, you'll probably know that I'm normally sat here with my third cup of coffee of the morning, and doing something like this: Yes, I am a bit of an Oreo lover and the highlight of my day is having a couple of the round chocolatey lovlies as my elevenses (OK tenses, sometimes ninethirtyses!). So, there I was at lunchtime today studying away when my old email pingpong buddy Marie sends me this. Now, Shimelle is a bit of a crafty legend anyway and her cupcake recipes are normally to die for, but cupcakes AND Oreos? Surely such a thing is just too good for humankind to stand?! So, I tried to carry on with my work, but I kept getting flashes of the choclately goodness and eventually, at 3pm, I gave in and downed tools and trotted off to Sainsburys for supplies!
Now, they didn't all go accordingly to plan (Note to self: Shimelle is a cupcake goddess, so when she says fill the cases 3/4 full you fill them 3/4 full, not all the way to the top! Bad cupcake amateur!) but I had a decent amount of success. Just look at the yumminess:
You're drooling aren't you?!
Of course, my usual taste testers were all to willing to do a spot of quality control for me, just to make sure!
So now I have about 30 of the lovely little things sat in my fridge...calling me...Lou, you must eat us.....
