Did you all have a good weekend? I sure did! I went down to LA with a friend and she took me on a bakery tour. I can’t wait to tell you guys about it later this week. I saw some pretty amazing flavors and desserts. It gives me some inspiration to get back in the kitchen and get to work.
While I was in Bass Lake this summer, I discovered Birthday Cake Oreos. Umm what? I have been living under a rock? These things are amazing. I knew I wanted to make some sort of dessert with them. So I used them in this Funfetti Poke Cake. What is so amazing about this cake? It is topped with Cake Batter Whipped Cream and Birthday Cake Oreos. This cake is sprinkle overload and I am in love.
There are a many things I love when it comes to dessert; homemade whipped cream is one of them. It’s so easy to make and often impresses my guests! At Christmas time, I made a Hot Chocolate Whipped Cream, which is my most pinned recipe on Pinterest. Now that winter is coming to an end, I figured it was time for a new whipped cream. I have been dreaming about Cake Batter Whipped Cream for weeks. I love cake batter, but most cake batter flavored desserts are too sweet or over flavored for me.
This Cake Batter Whipped Cream is perfect. It is a bit thicker than regular whipped cream, but it’s not overpowering or overly sweet. I dipped strawberries in it, put it on some cake and basically ate the entire batch myself. Seriously, my boyfriend didn’t even take a bite. Continue reading
Prepare for cake batter bliss
Good things come in small packages. Mini cupcakes are no exception. I think there is a guilt-less factor in eating mini cupcakes; at least until you get to the 4th or 5th one.
I have seen tons of businesses built around mini cupcakes, which are usually so gorgeous. I LOVE mini cupcakes, but they have their challenges. They are easy to over bake and limit your decorating options, plus I think they take a little bit more work because there are more of them.
I wanted to try something different with these minis. First, I baked them without a liner, then I dipped them in white chocolate, rolled them in sprinkles and topped them off with cake batter frosting. My friends inhaled them by the handfuls.
Adorable little things aren’t they?
You can do this with any flavor of cupcake and colored sprinkles, but I chose pink, red and white since Valentines Day is coming up! First things first, bake yourself some mini cupcakes (without the liners) and be sure to grease your pan. You can check my previous post for tips on cupcake baking.
