Oreo Week!

Screen shot 2014-03-19 at PM 11.09.59

It all started with me wanting to bake an Oreo Cheesecake for my boyfriend on his birthday, so I baked the cake, and it turned out that I overestimated the number of Oreos I needed. Maybe overestimated is an understatement. So instead of having the Oreos by themselves I decided to have Oreo Week, using Oreos in desserts till I ran out of them.

This was the Oreo Cheesecake I baked for my sweet. He loved it and so did his family! I was thrilled. I’ve never baked an actual cheesecake before. The last time I made him a cheesecake was 2 years ago when I did a jelly hearts cake, a no bake kind of cheesecake. It didn’t turn out so yummy so I really needed him to love this one. Redemption was mine! I used a simple philadelphia recipe but scanned through a ton of comments and most of them said that they added sour cream so I decided to add in a little in as well. Was so happy with the result, although it did end up having a lot of big cracks once I took it out of the oven, so I tried to cover them up by filling the cracks with chopped Oreos.

I came across this recipe whilst searching for the best Oreo Cheesecake recipe, so I decided to save some batter from the cake to make these cute little things. Was so happy with how they turned out! A smaller and lighter alternative for someone who doesn’t want a whole slice of cake.

3. Deep Fried Oreos

Now this i’ve been craving ever since I left Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk that one beautiful summers day. I’ve had deep fried mars bars before, but deep fried ores…. MMMMMM!! I can’t even!! America is too far away, so I had to bring the deep fried Oreos to me! The batter is really simple to make, just be careful not to burn yourself when you’re frying them. Was happy I could share this wonderful experience with my family, and I made their Sunday.

So that concludes Oreo Week. Honestly Oreos are so yummy and there’s so much that can be done with them! I’m definitely having another Oreo Week. You should too šŸ™‚ xx

I’ve been away a really long while and in this time i’ve done a little baking. I even baked my own birthday cake on my birthday, my friends and family thought that that was both weird and sad, but really to me it was another reason to bake! I’ve been experimenting abit and will eventually upload pictures of what i’ve been up to, but in the mean time here’s what I Ā baked a couple of days ago!

Green tea cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Ok honestly, i am NOT a fan or green tea in food, green tea drinks, ok fill me up, but green tea in food? I’ll pass. So why bake green tea cupcakes, firstly I just wanted to try them out, sounds pretty good doesn’t it, ok and I saw green tea powder at the store, bought it and then realized I had to eventually do something with it. 2. The colour is gorgeous!!

The end of school is nearing and i’m graduating. I wish I had a plan, i wish i could go to bake school and bake for a living. Open my own store and be a merry happy baker.

So the story behind the title is that no one is my family likes green tea in food either!! So Green Tea Cupcake anyone??
