Cookies 'n Cream C*O*W

It's finally here! Tuesday, June 2, on my doorstep courtesy of's preorder opportunity, was my brand new, just released copy of Martha Stewart's Cupcakes book. YAY! So many cupcakes - so little baking time. We need more weekends. :-}
I had aleady decided that for this week I wanted to do a cookies 'n cream cupcake so I went with those, but I decided to try a new frosting. I have read about this in alot of different places, so I decided to make vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream. Yum! it tastes like ice cream. Really smooth. I added crushed Oreos to it, to match my flavor of cupcake. I can't wait to try other flavors, and more of the recipies from the book. And, what you can't se from the picture - they are wearing cute zebra print cupcake papers!
I did make something for me, this weekend (since I rarely keep any cupcakes home). Rhubarb! I just made a simple rhubarb sauce, since I didn't want to mess with a pie crust, or making cookie bars. This way I get straight rhubarb, anyway.
Did I mention I bought the ice cream freezer attachment for my KitchenAid mixer? I also bought a used copy of the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream and Desserts cookbook online, and made a batch of New York Super Fudge Chunk ice cream for Scott. Tasted just like theirs! My next recipe will be a sorbet for me, I think. If I remember, I'll snap a photo next time he's eating.
Well, till next week . . . . .
What my friends thought . . .
. . . have you secretly taken out an insurance policy on our lives? these are really decadent!
. . . Fabulous, as always. I especially liked the cookie surprise at the end!
Rhonda hated the frosting. But, Julie and Carol both loved the frosting!
Seems overall consensus is the Hot Cha Cha Cappuchino Chip cupcakes are still the favorite.
