Pumpkin Pull Apart Cupcakes + OREO Contest

Well we are only about a week away from Halloween, have you decided what you are baking? Today I have an extra special idea for you! I’m super excited to be working with OREO and they want to see YOUR creations! How fun is that?

Get out those baking bowls because we have 3 fun contests for you! Beginning today, OREO is giving Five (5) lucky Hoosier Homemade readers a chance to use their creativity, share what they made and win $100. {details below}

First, though, let me share with you the Pumpkin Pull Apart Cupcakes. Many years ago, pretty much everyone baked cakes…large, fancy, decorated cakes, and then cupcakes became popular and everyone quickly learned how easy it was to make and serve them. There were still many people that loved the look of a decorated cake, so Pull Apart Cakes were born.

What is a Pull Apart Cake you ask? Well, simply cupcakes put together to resemble a cake and frosted.

Whether you are hosting a Halloween Party, taking a treat for a classroom party or simply making an extra special after dinner treat, everyone is sure to love these cupcakes! And with the Halloween OREO cookies added, it super easy!

Because we all know everyone loves OREO cookies, how about baking them right in the cupcake?

Simply place an OREO in the bottom of the cupcake liner, cover with batter and bake as normal.

Now the exciting part…the OREO Contest!
