Recipe: Sweet! Try These Oreo Hockey Cupcakes
Lisa has delivered another hip check (as in, check my hips after ploughing through a dozen of these incredible cupcakes) with these game winning Hockey Themed Cupcakes. Not only are these Oreo Cupcakes moist and checkered with chopped Oreo cookies, but they are also topped with a creamy white icing and easy-to-recreate fondant hockey paraphernalia. One bite and you’ll agree…She Shoots, She Scores!!!
Vanilla Oreo Cupcakes
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
2½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp kosher salt
1½ cups chopped Oreo cookies
½ cup butter
¼ cup vegetable shortening
2½ cups icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp whole milk
Fondant to decorate, light brown and black for hockey stick and blue and white for jersey
1) For the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
2) Using the whisk attachment of an electric mixer, beat sugar and eggs on medium speed for 2 minutes. On low speed, add the vegetable oil, vanilla extract and sour cream, mixing until blended. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chopped Oreos, mixing just until combined. Divide batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 22-24 minutes. Cool cupcakes completely before frosting and decorating.
3) For the frosting, using an electric mixer, cream together butter and shortening. Add icing sugar on low speed until well combined. Add vanilla extract and milk, mixing until smooth and desired consistency. Spread frosting on cooled cupcakes and garnish with fondant hockey sticks or fondant jersey.
4) For the fondant hockey stick use a letter L cookie cutter to cut the rolled fondant, then shape it into more of a hockey stick shape. For the fondant jersey use either a shirt cookie cutter or shape with your hands. Decorate with your favorite number or team symbol.
Yield: 24 cupcakes
