Why Choose When You Can Have Both?

I’ve always been tickled by the idea of a cookie in a cupcake. I wonder if the person who came up with the idea accidentally dropped cookies into cake batter and was too lazy to take them out or if it was one of those ‘I’m bored. Let’s try something funny’ scenarios. Whatever it is, I think the Oreo cupcake is a great idea!

I made some and I loved them! I love how the cookie retains its shape yet softens while the cream just suspends within the cake and adds another subtle dimension to the cake. I do not love how addictive it is.

Love this poofy mini version!

I topped the Perfect Chocolate Cupcakes with White Russian buttercream and toasted almonds. I wanted to leave the ChOreo Cupcakes as is but to see a cupcake without frosting or any form of decoration just seems wrong. I was running a little late so I placed a mini Oreo on top of each ChOreo Cupcake just for nice.

It seems Winnie and her colleagues enjoyed the cupcakes. One of them even said she loved them and would pay money for them! I received rave reviews for the White Russian buttercream too.
