Classic American Buttercream
- 3 cups of powdered sugar (sifted)
- 1 cup (230gm) butter at room temperature
- 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2-3 tablespoons of milk to adjust the consistency
- 1/4-1/2 cup of Oreo cookies crumbs (creme removed)

Instructions

1) Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a cupcake tray with paper cases. Place a whole Oreo cookie into each cupcake case.
2) Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a bowl give it all a good whisk around.
3) In a separate bowl beat the butter and sugar together until it combines then add the vanilla extract and the eggs. Whisk until well homogenized.
4) Alternately add the milk and flour and bring all the ingredients together, adding any remaining flour at the end.
5) Divide between the cupcake cases, covering the Oreo’s and bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes.
6) To make the Oreo Buttercream: Beat the butter in a large bowl until soft and creamy (3-4 minutes). Add half of the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add the remaining powdered sugar and vanilla essence and beat the mixture until creamy and smooth. Add in the milk, if necessary, to loosen the mixture. Then add crushed Oreo crumbs and mix to homogenise.
7) Scoop the buttercream into a piping bag and pipe a good amount of the buttercream on top of the cooled cupcakes. Decorate with Oreos.
