Oreo cookie cupcake confusion!

Well,I went at it today. I decided to take on the Oreo cookie cupcake and well, it ended up tasting very much like corn bread. Ok, I started with the recipe And just drifted off a little when I added buttermilk, of course for moisture. This is not the first time I have added buttermilk to a recipe, but wow…it overpowered the cookie taste. The frosting is really awesome however. It is a thick butter cream with tons of body. It called for cut up ores in the frosting as well and when I “plated” my little cake it looked as though it was topped with a scoop of homemade ice cream. Now, I am not saying this is a horrible throw away cake. I don’t think it will win any awards but it will satisfy the kids and parents at my brothers back to school night Wed. Yikes…I do get very nervous when a mouth gets into position to taste, I mean seriously we all expect a “rock my world” experience and when we don’t get it we are really bummed. I think as humans we covet our food. I will admit, I want people to covet my cakes. My brother said these were NOT my best, but he ate three when he thought I wasn’t looking. My mom loves cornbread AND ores so she was loving them. I guess I will hide in the multipurpose room at back to school night and watch for a sign any sign to help me conclude the Oreo cupcake!

    Hope, you are so entertaining. I can’t sleep and it’s 4:30 a.m. I just realized in the last 25 min. Of reading through your blog, I have both laughed (out loud) and cried! Thank you.
