Lots of women like to think out loud, and Dessert Doll is one of them. On her blog, the baker shows off her latest creations and talks about new trends.
A new craze called “bedtime story party” has risen among the children’s party circuit. I was quite unaware of any such party until I was asked to make cupcakes for one. The party consisted of children wearing pajamas and party tables decorated like beds. Although the whole concept just seemed alien to me, I must admit when the party came together it seemed pretty cute. As soon as I was told the theme was bedtime I thought what goes better with bedtime than milk and cookies.
After much deliberation I decided to make an Oreo Cookies and Milk Cupcake. After all, Oreos are milk's favorite cookie. The cupcake was a traditional vanilla cake with cool ribbons of cookies and cream pudding. The pudding was made with our delicious homemade pudding recipe and crushed Oreos, it represented the milk. The cupcake was frosted with a whipped vanilla butter cream and topped with a mini Oreo cookie.
Everyone seemed to enjoy it, even the rowdy 3-year-olds at the party.
