Cannella Vita: cookies n' creme cupcakes - with a whole Oreo cookie baked into the bottom! The cookie stays firm and crunchy, which makes it interesting to eat against the soft, moist cake, but it gives the whole thing a really lovely crunch.
braided pie crust is a martha stewart favorite and an easy, eye-catching finishing touch. cut long, thick strips of dough and braid them together. brush the edge of the crust or the bottom of the braids with water, then secure.
