Cupcakes don’t need to actually be mini-cakes – as evidenced by these cupcake-shaped cookies, they can be flattened discs of tastiness, as well. This batch of sugar cookies consists of frosted cupcake cookies, frosted cartoon-y cat cookies, and cookies shaped like lit birthday candles and the number 1. Basically, they work well for birthday parties, but once you remove the birthday candles and numbers, they can be served in lieu of cupcakes for any occasion!

Few things are better than a double-stuf Oreo cookie. Except for these cupcakes, perhaps. A standard chocolate cake batter is darkened to look like an Oreo cookie thanks to the addition of dark cocoa powder. Other ingredients inlude flour, butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. The frosting consists of corn syrup, butter, milk, shortening and powder sugar. Dollop a bit on top before serving, or make extra and pipe it inside of the cupcakes for an authentic Oreo cookie experience.

Cookie Cupcakes with Raspberry Fluff Frosting are a curious dessert. Is it a cookie or a cupcake? Yes. It is a cocoa cupcake with a sandwich cookie baked inside and topped with a raspberry buttercream marshmallow cream frosting. This sweet treat is light enough for an afternoon tea but rich enough for your favorite child’s birthday party or Sunday dinner. Not too sweet, not too tangy, this dessert fits in anywhere you serve it.

These chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes combine the best of both worlds: chocolate cupcakes and chocolate chip cookie dough. The batter is made from a devil’s food cake mix with chocolate pudding and espresso granules added to give it a bit of a kick. A ball of pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough goes into the center of each before baking. After removing these goodies from the oven, top with a vanilla buttercream, then garnish with chocolate chips and whole, baked cookie! Yum.
