How to Create Oreo CupCakes

23 Jan

There is nothing like a great cupcake, and even better there is nothing like a great Oreo Cupcake so I decided to bake up some easy, quick cupcakes that everyone will love.

Start off with your favorite cake recipe, or your can even use a cake mix from a box such as those made by Betty Crocker, Duncan Hines or Pillsbury.

Prepare your cake mix as directed…..I am using a Duncan Hines White Cake Mix

You will need some oreo cookies, you can get the regular sized cookies or the little mini’s which I must say are just too cute. Those who know me, know that I LOVE, LOVE anything that is mini in size…..I have all sorts of collections that are mini in size such as all those cute little Tupperware mini’s, omg I just love them…..hehe can you tell I love mini’s?? If you don’t know what Tupperware mini’s are I will post a pic here which is very off topic but since I love them I will share the pic of them I got off of ebay……most are keychains and are too cute, I have some like these but just noticed there are many I don’t have as of yet…..hmmm may need to do a little ebaying later, anyway back to whats important CUPCAKES! Sorry I got off topic!!! 🙂

Now as I said you need some Oreo Cookies……….Regular sized cookies or the mini’s it does not matter we are going to crush them up.

Place a handful of the mini cookies in a sandwich baggie (if your using the large cookies I would use about 6 of them) and place a cloth on top of the baggie then use a hammer to crush the cookies. Its up to you how small you want the cookie pieces to be I like to leave small chunks since this will be placed into the cake batter.

Pour your crushed cookies into your cake batter and fold them into the batter as not to mix too much.

This is what your batter should look like once you fold the cookies into your batter. You can see some of the small chunks which will taste so good when biting into the cupcake…..yummm!

Place your cupcake liner papers into a cupcake pan and spoon your batter into the cupcake papers.

Looking into my oven my cupcakes are baking nicely and beginning to rise….ohh I cannot wait to taste them!

Cupcakes are cooling….I usually wait a few hours before I ice them!

I am using my favorite Buttercream Icing Recipe for these cupcakes which can be found here…..

Here is my Buttercream Icing all set to go….Now its time to add some icing to my Oreo Cupcakes!

I used a wilton bag and icing tip number 6B which is a large icing tip….I like to just pop it inside the bottom of the icing bag since I will not be changing tips…..if you were going to change tips then you would also use a large coupler in the bottom of your icing bag. recent 024 - Copy

I just do a simple swirl on top of the cupcake, nothing major…..its all about being simple here!

Once iced, pop a mini oreo on top of the cupcake to finish off the look, if you used the regular sized oreos then use a half of the cookie to put on the top of your cupcake. IMG_0463

Now its time to sit and enjoy one of these awesome Oreo Cupcakes, ohhh soo good if I don’t say so myself!
