Oreo Cupcakes

8404_240091132803772_2039053713_nHow can you make Oreos cookies taste even better than they already are?! Obviously, make a cake with them!!!
One day I was having one or two (20/30) cookies while I was baking some cupcakes for a customer and the smell of the cupcakes in the oven mixed with the taste of the cookies made me have this great idea.

For 12 cupcakes you will need:

  • 2 cups of self raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 120 gr of  salted butter
  • 1 cup and 3/4 of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 and a half  cups of milk
  • 1 and a half cups of Oreos

Frosting:

  • 250 gr of butter
  • 250 gr of icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 other cup of crushed(very very finely or they’ll stick in the nozzle) Oreos = 12 for decoration

The funny part: Separate 12 Oreos and save 12 part...
