Cookies & Cream Gravity Defying Cupcakes

What’s not to like about Oreos? Seriously? It’s like like pure joy between two chocolate cookies. It only gets better when you can cookies and cream your favorite recipes. I’m no stranger to Oreos. Have you seen my Bite Sized Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches, and a massive Two Tier Oreo Ice Cream Cake. But this is My Cupcake Addiction, and where would any of us be if I didn’t give you a Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Cupcake!

For this recipe, you’ll need my famous perfectly pipeable buttercream frosting. You can find that recipe here. Part of the fun of this cupcake is that it’s also an illusion cupcake. Attaching the mini Oreo bag to the top of the Pocky stack is actually pretty easy, and it’ll make a lot of people’s jaws drop when they see those falling Oreos!

  2. Put all of your cake ingredients into an electric mixer. Beat on a low speed, and then gradually blend at a higher speed. light and fluffy

  4. Use an ice cream scooper to fill the liners ⅔ of the way full.
