Oreo Cupcakes with Cream Filling

Oreo Cupcake

We bought a house last winter and had the luck of moving in during the biggest snow storm of the season (go us!). 

Despite bad timing for moving, we love our house.  It’s 100 years old, packed with memories and the location is amazing. 

Our house is next to the biggest park in the city and a beautiful lake.  Anytime the kids want to run and play and have fun, we go to the park.  No need to have a big play set in our backyard when we have one right next door.

This park is also home to a weekly city wide festival with vendors, bands and kid friendly activities every Wednesday during the Summer. 

So when my daughter mentioned she wanted to do a lemonade stand this summer, we knew just when to do it.  Wednesday nights during festival hours, on our front steps!

We decided that we should offer fresh squeezed homemade lemonade and cupcakes.- and feature a new cupcake every week.

We agreed that all the money earned would go into a specific account for her future.  One to be used for college or a mission for our church if she chose to serve one or towards her retirement or whatever we decide on when she turns 18. 

My daughter and I worked together to make our lemonade.  We then worked together to make the cupcakes, frosting and then to taste test them to make sure they met our strict palate.  Both the lemonade and cupcakes passed with flying colors.

These Oreo cupcakes were our first weeks cupcake choice. 

These Oreo cupcakes were a huge hit and we sold just over 18 cupcakes for $1 each!  They were such a hit that we now, after 3 weeks of doing our lemonade stand have gotten a bit of a following with repeat customers who come back each week for our lemonade and cupcakes. 

My kids LOVED these oreo cupcakes and so did our customers!  The cupcakes are really quite simple to make, easy to fill and oh so yummy!  If you have an Oreo lover in your house, then whip up a batch of these oreo cupcakes!
