Top 2 with mini Oreo and bottom one with regular Oreo
Thanks to the inspiration in Nasi Lemak Lover - Oreo Owl Cupcake. Actually, I did not manage to try any of the cup cake, I hope it had an excellent taste.

  3. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together
  4. Beat the butter, salt and sugar until light and fluffy.
  5. Add in egg yolks first, beat until combine. There is no egg separation involved but add in the yolks first.
  6. Add in egg whites, beat until combine.
  7. Add yogurt and whipping cream mixture, beat to combine.
  8. Add in flour mixture, mix until combined.
  9. Scoop the batter into the tins to about 80% full. (Do not put too full, to avoid the batter overflowing.)
  10. Bake for 20 minutes or adjust according to the liners that you use, until the cake is spring when touch lightly.
  11. Let the cake cool completely before decorating them.

Decorating Oreo Owl cupcakes
  • Oreo mini cookies (2 cookies per cupcake)
  • Brown m&m’s (2 per cupcake), mini size
  • Yellow m&m’s (1 per cupcake), mini size
  • 200g dark chocolate (Cadbury baking chocolate)
  • 25g whipping cream
  1. Melt 200g dark chocolate (Cadbury baking chocolate) and 25g whipping cream. Set the chocolate ganache aside to cool.
  2. Separate all of the Oreo cookies, using only the cookies that have the white frosting.
  3. Spread chocolate ganache on top of cupcake. Gently press each cookie on the cupcake to form an eye, making a pair for each cupcake.
  4. Stick one brown M&Ms candy on each cookie to form an eye, making a pair for each cupcake.
  5. Using a yellow M&Ms candy, gently press it below and in between the cookie eyes to form a beak. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
  6. Take some chocolate ganache, put on the top of cupcake and use a toothpick to decorate the hair.
  7. Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
