It’s cold outside and these cocoa cupcakes are a fun way to stay cozy and cute inside. They are  reminiscent of hot chocolate but presented as a sweet little cake with cocoa frosting and the tiniest marshmallow bits to top them off and tie the whole look together.

Chocolate Cupcakes

The best part is these cupcakes are super easy to pull together and you can mix all the ingredients for the cupcakes in one bowl. I always love that.

By the way – stop what you are doing and go follow @jennareaecakes on instagram. I have a total crush on their bakery and all of their beautiful pastel colored-sweets, treats and confections. Their aesthetic is the dreamiest. I just need to visit Vancouver to try them in person one day. In the meantime, I have their cookbook. YAY! And I also bought their Liquid Cotton Candy so I could make these cookies.

Oreo Cookie Cake

Halloween may be my favorite time of the year to make treats. I love combining spooky and cute and serving it up as something sweet to eat. And this easy cake covers it all.

Check out my Halloween section for more frightfully fun ideas to trick out your treats.

Separating Oreo Cookies

Oreos are the stars when it comes to making this cake come to life. Separate the cookies and creme carefully because they tend to pull apart with some of the creme center attached to each cookie wafer. I probably ruined more cookies than I was able to separate cleanly, so think about buying a family pack to give yourself extra chances. And, I’m sure you can find a happy home for any mess-ups. ; )

To separate, very gently twist the cookie wafers back and forth in tiny movements to try to keep the creme attached to one of the wafers. When successfully separated, you may still need to clean them up. Use a toothpick to gently scrape off any residual crumbs from the surface.

Oreo Cookie Eyes

Eye Candy! To turn these Oreos into eyes, you can use purple candy wafers and black M&M’s. Easy!! Green or orange candy wafers would be cute, too.

Gently press a candy wafer into the creme with the flat side facing up. Add a dot of white candy coating to the underside when you attach if you want to make them extra secure. Then, melt some of the purple candy wafers to attach the M&M’s. You’ll just need a small dot of melted candy coating to “glue” the two together.

Oreo Eyes

Look how cute!

But that’s not all! The cake itself is stuffed with Oreo cookies and the frosting is speckled with crumbs, too. Let me show you!

Chocolate Cookie Dough

These cookies are quick, easy and kind of addictive. And you should totally bake some even if you don’t want to decorate them. I based them off these vanilla sugar cookies that I can’t stop making. They are so good!

The dough is scooped, rolled and then flattened slightly for a sweet little round canvas. 

So Soft Chocolate Cookies

Once the cookies are baked and cooled, scoop a small amount of chocolate buttercream on top.

But how do we go from that to these sweet-fanged faces.

All-Occasion White Cake

I love cake. But mostly chocolate cake. Actually, I will probably always pick chocolate cake first. My mom on the other hand loves, loves, loves vanilla cake. White cake. Wedding cake. That’s her favorite flavor. Wait, is wedding cake a flavor?! Sure. Well for her birthday recently, I wanted to bake her a white cake. […]

I love cake. But mostly chocolate cake. Actually, I will probably always pick chocolate cake first. My mom on the other hand loves, loves, loves vanilla cake. White cake. Wedding cake. That’s her favorite flavor. Wait, is wedding cake a flavor?! Sure.

Well for her birthday recently, I wanted to bake her a white cake. And surprise. I did not have a recipe here on my site. I have my go to yellow cake that is a forever keeper, but not a white cake. So, I obviously had to remedy that. And would you know, I’ve made this cake three times in the last four weeks.

White Cake Ingredients

It’s so good and you just need basic ingredients to make it. Win-Win!

This is basically a vanilla cake, but it uses all egg whites in the batter and not the yolks that give it a more yellow color.

Favorite White Cake

Look at that slice. It’s a thing of beauty – bathed in buttercream.

And what I love even more is that it’s my new favorite all-occasion cake. It’s a great go-to for birthdays, celebrations, and anniversaries at home. You get it.
