I meant to post this earlier in the week, and I was going to say that I've been busy, but that would be a lie.
Last weekend we had some really good family friends over for dinner. My mom and I were getting dinner ready when it started storming and the power went out. And about a minute later, our friends pulled into our driveway. We ended up hanging out on our screened-in back porch for a little while, and then ate dinner by candle light. It was actually kind of nice! Then almost as soon as we were done with dinner, the power came back on.
And then we had dessert!
These cupcakes were soo good. I think they were better than the Oreo ones, even though those are still my favorites.
I made these cupcakes exactly like the Oreo cupcakes. Half of them have Tagalong cookies in them and the other half have Reese's peanut butter cups in them. I made the Reese's one a little differently though. I filled the cupcake pan up all the way, then sat a Reese's cup on top, and pushed it down slightly into the batter. While they were baking, they sank all the way to the bottom of the pan and stuck to the foil liners. They still tasted good, though!
The Tagoalong cupcakes were amazing, though. I will definitely be making these again for my friends when we all get back to school!
I've been looking for a good cupcake carrier for when my mom takes all the leftover cupcakes and things to work. And just because I didn't have anything to transport them in at all. My mom found this really awesome collapsible, two-level carrier. I know what you're thinking. A collapsible, two-level carrier!? Yeah, super cool.
