Overly Oreo Cupcakes! |5MF

Hey guys! So today’s post is a little bit different since its not related to beauty, but since its a Five Minute Fix post I thought I could get away with it! I got the inspiration, and the recipe for these cupcakes from Tanya Burr’s blog post and video since I thought they looked so delicious and I had to try them. As you can obviously read the recipe on her blog, I thought I would do a more photo-based post for you and show you the step-by-step method. I hope you enjoy this type of post, and please let me know if you make these Oreo cupcakes!

Take out your cupcakes when they are cooked. To check they are cooked, lightly press on them to see if they bounce back - if they do, then it's likely their done! Or, you can poke a skewer into them to check it comes out clean with no mixture on it.

P.S. I would absolutely love it if Tanya saw this post – I know it’s not likely! But if you enjoyed reading it would mean the world if you tweeted this to her! x

  1. Well done they look fabulous! I made them too. You can see my efforts on my blog post “Wandering in Winchester and Oreo cupcakes”. I think are probably the best cupcakes I’ve ever tried. Yours look amazing :-)
