Mr. B’s 6th birthday theme was, wait for it…birthday themed! I let him pick the theme every year and he wanted to keep it classic. Okay, for all you people that don’t know me well, of course Mr. B didn’t actually tell me what he wanted for his birthday but I like to pretend he does! I kept it simple with balloons, pizza, cookies, cake (covered in animal crackers!), and the most delectable oreo stuffed cupcakes. Oh! And popsicles with prosecco–GENUIS and so good. A good time was had by all (except one of the fur baby babies, Bella, who accidentally got into the pizza. I feel ya, girl. I would have too!).
Mr. B’s 7th birthday party is on Friday and I have planned absolutely nothing (shhhh, don’t tell him). With the birthday parties, gender reveals, and bridal showers that I’ve had going on, his birthday this year hasn’t gotten that much attention. I’m sure I’ll be coming up with something though at like 1am on Thursday night so don’t worry about us!
Anyway, see below for the oreo stuffed cupcake recipe – EVERYONE will ask for this recipe! It’s SOOOOO good.
Oreo cupcake recipe:
1 box Pillsbury funfetti cake mix
1 box Jell-O vanilla instant pudding mix
⅓ cup oil
1 cup water
1 package oreos (I’ve used double stuffed & birthday cake and both are great!) – reserve 20 whole oreos for the bottom of the cupcake and crush up remaining 25 cookies (I like to put the cookies into a plastic bag to crush up more easily)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Line cupcake pan with liners and place an oreo in the bottom of each liner
- Mix cake mix, pudding packet, eggs, oil, & water together. Fold in crushed oreos to batter.
- Pour batter into oreo lined cupcake pan (fill to brim)
- Bake for 16-18 minutes
- Cool and frost
