HEY GUYS! DOESN'T THIS CAKE LOOK SO COOL! I LOVE IT! I MADE THIS YESTERDAY, I FIGURED OUT I BAKE WHEN I'M BORED, LITERALLY MY WORK TAKES OVER MY LIFE FROM MONDAY TO FRIDAY AND MOST OF THE TIME I'M REALLY BUSY AT THE WEEKENDS BUT THIS WEEKEND HAS BEEN SO CHILLED SO I STARTED TO MAKE A CHOCOLATE CAKE, I WASN'T SURE HOW I WANTED TO DECORATE IT, I DID MY ACTUALLY CAKE AND LEFT IT TO COOL AND MADE MY BUTTER CREAM AND LEFT THAT ON THE SIDE WHILST I WENT THE SHOP, AND I WAS WALKING AROUND AND SAW KITKAT FINGERS AND WAS LIKE WOW THAT WOULD BE AMAZING TO PUT ROUND A CAKE! BUT THEN I SAW CHOCOLATE FINGERS AND THEY JUST SEEMED MORE ROUNDED AND NICER LOOKING FOR A CAKE SO I CHOSE THEM INSTEAD. I WAS FIXED ON DOING A BORING TOPPING UNTIL I FOUND SOME MINI CHOCOLATE DROPS/SMARTIES! AND SO I GOT THEM, BEFORE I TRIED THIS CAKE I WASN'T VERY HOPEFULLY THAT IT WAS GOING TO WORK, I LITERALLY PUT SOME BUTTER CREAM IN THE MIDDLE, AND THEN SPREAD IT ON TOP AND ON THE SIDES, AND THEN STUCK MY CHOCOLATE FINGERS ON, I DID THEM THIS SIZE AS I COULD USE THE WHOLE PACKET AND HAVE NO WASTE! AND AT THE END SPRINKLED MY SMARTIES ON AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! I THINK IT WOULD MAKE A REALLY NICE CHILDRENS CAKE! AGAIN THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING!

HEYS GUYS! SO THERE'S MORE THAT DOESN'T MEET THE EYE WITH THESE, IS THAT RIGHT? IS THAT A SAYING? IM REALLY STUPID, ANYWAY WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT THERES MORE TO THESE CAKES THEN WHAT YOU CAN SEE, BECAUSE INSIDE EACH CAKE IS A GOOEY BIT OF MARS BAR! YUM! BASICALLY I WANTED TO MAKE SOME CAKES THAT WERE GOOEY INSIDE, BUT NOT LIKE SYRUP OR CHOCOLATE SAUCE OR ANYTHING, AND THEN I REMEMBERED I HAD A BOX OF CELEBRATIONS UPSTAIRS, SO I GRABBED ALL THE MARS BAR ONES OUT AND STARTED TO MAKE MY CAKES, I FILLED HALF A CUPCAKE CASE FULL OF MY CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX, THEN PLACED A SEGMENT IN THE MIDDLE, AND FILLED IT UP WITH CUPCAKE MIX AGAIN SO THEY WERE IN THE MIDDLE, AND IM VERY PROUD THAT THESE WORKED AS ID NEVER TRIED THEM OR HEARD ANYBODY ELSE THAT HAD DONE THEM BEFORE! AS YOU CAN SEE I USED A VERY SIMPLE DESIGN ON TOP AND NOT ONE MASSIVE SWIRL BECAUSE IF YOU WERE EATING THEM AND BIT THROUGH TONS OF BUTTER CREAM THENTHROUGH CHOCOLATE CAKE AND THEN STRAIGHT INTO GOOEY CHOCOLATE IT MAY OF BEEN TOO SICKLY SO I KEPT IT VERY PLAIN. THEY TASTED AMAZING AND EVERYBODY WHO HAD ONE LOVED THEM! AGAIN THANKS FOR READING GUYS!

OKAY SO I MADE A NORMAL CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX, BUT ALSO ADDED CHOC CHIPS, I PUT THEM IN THE OVEN AND JUST BEFORE THEY WERE READY I SPRINKLED MORE CHOC CHIPS ON THE TOP, I COOLED THEM AND THEN USED A WILTON M1 NOZZLE.. TO BE HONEST I LIKED THE SOUND OF THIS NOZZLE BUT EVERYTIME I USE IT IM NEVER HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS SO I THINK IM GOING TO STICK TO MY CHEAP PLASTIC ONES! BUT YEAH ANYWAY I ADD MELTED CHOCOLATE TO MY ICING AS IT MAKES IT TASTE EXTRA CHOCOLATEY AND THEN STUCK HALF A MARYLAND COOKIE IN THE MIDDLE.

I WANT EVERYBODY TO EXPERIENCE THE MARYLAND COOKIE CUPCAKE TO ACTUALLY REALIZE THEY TASTE NICER THAN WHAT THEY LOOK!

CHOCOLATE OREO CUPCAKES
4OZ CASTER SUGAR
4OZ SELF RAISING FLOUR
4OZ BUTTER
2 EGGS
1OZ COCO POWDER
BUTTERCREAM:
4OZ BUTTER
8OZ ICING SUGAR

WELL THIS IS MY SECOND POST FOR TODAY AND THESE ARE MY OREO CUPCAKES! AGAIN I WAS JUST GOOGLING AND JOTTING DOWN IDEAS WHEN I SAW SOME COOKIE MONSTER CAKES (WHICH I WILL GET ROUND TO DOING) AND ITS BASICALLY THE COOKIE MONSTER WITH LIKE AN AVERAGE COOKIE IN HIS MOUTH, HOWEVER IT GOT ME THINKING AS TO WHAT ARE EVERYBODY'S FAVORITE COOKIES? AND OBVIOUSLY WHO DOESN'T LIKE OREOS? SO I DECIDED TO MAKE THESE! I BAKED NORMAL CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES, PIPED SOME NORMAL BUTTERCREAM ON AND SPRINKLED SOME CRUSHED OREO'S ON TOP AND THEN CUT OREOS IN HALF. IM NOT GOING TO LIE, CUTTING OREOS IN HALF ISNT EASY, I WASTED OVER HALF OF THE PACK BECAUSE THEY KEPT BREAKING! AFTER TRYING LOADS OF DIFFERENT METHODS ID SAY THE BEST WAY TO CUT AN OREO IS TO USE A SERRATED KNIFE AND CUT SLOWLY! UMMM SO YEAH THESE ARE SO SIMPLE TO MAKE AND LITERALLY ANYBODY CAN DO THEM! ESPECIALLY FUN FOR KIDS, AND I THINK THEY ARE IDEA TO EAT WITH A GLASS OF MILK! (I DONT EVEN LIKE MILK BUT EVERYBODY ON THE OREO ADVERTS EAT THEM WITH MILK) PEACE OUTTT!
