Oreo Cookies is celebrating its 100th year of being dunked in milk. So it only seemed fitting that it be incorporated into the first delivery to Atlanta’s The Insight Program as part of the Baked With Love outreach.
One hundred years of business. One hundred times to establish a truth. It all makes cosmic sense, right?
What didn’t make sense is how to store and transport all those Oreo cupcakes. I have quickly found I am woefully unready for this mission.
After all, buttercream frosting tends to droop in the spring days of the South, so I was forced to clean out the fridge: Out with the pickles, out with the carrots, out with my (beloved) Diet Coke.
And when I got ready to carry them, I found those big bakers’ cardboard boxes are a little too flexible for 50 cupcakes, with oreos precariously perched on the icing. In came the hubby for reinforcement – literally. (He, along with the kids, also made the delivery.)
That big baker’s box was, however, a perfect tableau for Emmie’s art work and our Very Necessary “We Love You” – check it out on the What We Are Doing.
The result? No cupcakes left within 20 minutes, and an enthusiastic ‘thumbs up’ from the teens for the Baked With Love outreach.
Here’s the oreo cupcake recipe – although I skipped the mint.
