Birthday Cake Oreo Cupcakes

I’m pretty sure that out of all the limited edition Oreos, the birthday cake Oreos have been the most successful – the creme in Oreos really suits itself to a vanilla icing flavour.  So obviously, any baking I did with these would have to include funfetti icing – it must be done!

I’ve been thinking a lot about cake lately – well, wedding cake!  I’m starting to move beyond the “ahhh, I’m engaged” stage to wedding planning.  The date we’ve chosen is still fairly far off, but in this cutthroat Bridezilla era, I want to have my venue and photographer booked before other people start planning for the same date as I want!  As a result, I’ve been reading some how-to books and am starting to try to get organised.  Details on what that exactly means in posts to follow!
