Life Love Larson: Oreo Cupcakes

Oreo Cupcakes

It was my hubby's birthday yesterday.  It begins the time of year (for 6 months) that he is 32 and I am still 31!  Why doesn't age affect men?  He could care less about getting older and all I can think about is how I don't get carded anymore, how I should have thought twice about going to the tanning bed when I was younger, and where did all these grays come from???!!!! 

I digress.  I think I gushed enough about him in the anniversary post, so I will spare you this time.  He doesn't read the blog, so I am not getting any brownie points anyway!  :)

My in-laws were here visiting, so we decided to grill out and I made some homemade oreo cupcakes to celebrate.  I knew I wanted to try these after seeing the recipe over at

She actually hosted a "Cupcake Carnival" where you can find several other delicious cupcake recipes!  I love her sweet little blog.  I found out about her blog after she was drawn to the "Larson" part of my blog...we share the same last name and we both have a daughter named Kate!  I think we were meant to be blog friends!!

You can get the full recipe here.  You must try these.  Delicious, simple, and fancy looking!

Yes!  The first step is to put an oreo on the bottom of your cupcake liner.  How can you go wrong here?

Homemade icing is just so much better than store bought (as with most things). 

Happy Birthday, Steve! 

Steve's coworkers and our neighbors are enjoying the leftovers today...too dangerous to keep in my own kitchen!


  1. Yeah! So glad you made them! Aren't they yummy? And, my husband's bday is tomorrow & he requested I make these again! Yum!

  3. I totally get the age thing, lol! Just blogged about it as a matter of fact ; ) These oreo cupcakes look insanely delicious. And given that whole age thing, dangerous. Thanks for sharing!
