For a friends birthday, she requested something Oreo. I thought it would be brilliant to fill chocolate cupcakes and cover them with Oreo frosting. They were awesome. I usually don't like chocolate cake (it's not chocolaty enough), but the chocolate cupcake recipe was great. I also added about 6 crushed Oreos. I was inspired by a peanut butter Oreo cupcake recipe. They were awesome and can be played with in lots of different ways with different fillings and frostings, from the same basic chocolate recipe. I also took the cream cheese out of the frosting since I don't like it.
I made filling from shortening to make sure it was white. I made it a little too thick and it didn't fill as well as I hoped. The frosting was fine with butter since the Oreos made it light brown. I doubled the recipe to feed the crowd and ended up with 28 cupcakes.
