Ok, so I know this is a little late, I should have posted it by Monday like every other blogger in the world was doing. But alas, it is now Thursday and I am just getting it on here! That’s ok though they will still taste yummy! This isn’t a recipe or anything, I just thought I’d share a pretty cool new product I found and what my contribution to the Superbowl was…..CUPCAKES! I made cupcakes for pretty much everything. They have cool liners and you can make any flavor and you can eat them without a plate and fork. There is also no real evidence that you ate them at all after you throw away the liner whereas with a cake, if you cut out a piece (or four) to eat, then everyone can tell that you are a Fatty McFatFat.
How cute are those liners! With football laces! I know right, total genius idea that I would think to make these for a Superbowl party? Well they were only $1, so there! And when I was looking for some other icing I had a coupon for I came across this Oreo Icing…ummm, YUMMY! At $1.38 there was just no way I would be able to not have that end up in my cart. They also had a Smores Icing that is going on my list for the next shopping trip!
So Sunday morning I made my cupcakes and set about to frost them. The tube has the kind of top that you can attach a frosting tip an pipe it straight from the bag onto your cupcakes, but I hate washing those stupid things out plus it was in the cabinet alllllll the way across the room, so that wasn’t happening. I took it and just squeezed a big blob on each cupcake and was going to spread it around. I also may or may not have squirted some in my mouth. Let me just say…..Oreo Icing should have been invented 10 years ago! The texture was a little ‘crunchy’ because it had cookie pieces (duh) and it was really…sticky? The one thing I think I would change is that I would get two pouches for each batch of cupcakes because I wasn’t able to put a whole lot of icing and I really like icing. I almost just mixed it in with a can of icing but didn’t know if it would be as yummy and oreo-y. Everyone loved them, it was just my preference.
Here are a few pictures of the finished cupcakes in their cute little liners.
