Description

This Oreo Frosting is incredibly silk, light and fluffy and tastes just like the filling of an Oreo cookie! It’s perfect for cakes chocolate cupcakes or vanilla cupcakes too! 


Ingredients

  • 3 sticks (1 ½ cups) Unsalted butter
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • 12 Oreos, crushed
  • 1-2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Cut the butter into pieces. Using the paddle attachment, whip the butter at medium high speed for 3-4 minutes, scraping down the bowl occasionally. Beat the butter until it looks lighter in color.
  2. Slowly add the powdered sugar, 2 cups at a time, adding the heavy whipping cream intermittently, mixing on low speed until it’s incorporated into the butter. Then increase the speed to high and beat for 30-60 seconds. Repeat until all your powdered sugar has been added.
  3. In a food processor, grind the Oreos into a fine crumb. Add the crushed Oreos to the frosting along with the vanilla extract. Slowly beat the crumbs into the frosting then beat at a high speed for 60 seconds.
  4. In a large piping bag fitted with a large closed star tip, pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes and place an Oreo in the side. Store in an air tight container.
