So my friend Alex couldn't eat real food, well because he was vegan for Lent. So he hasn't had my baking stuff for the past 40 days. It was really tempting for him, I'm sure. All the different things that I've made, but now since it's past Easter, he can finally eat things with eggs and meat in it. Eggs and butter mostly.
I decided to celebrate him finally eating food by baking him these Oreo Cupcakes. So the in the cupcake, it was a really dense chocolate thing, but I wanted something more light, I chose these chocolate sour cream cupcakes. I actually dont know how they'll taste together. They may not taste good together at all, but I guess we'll see.
The cupcake is from here. I've made these fluffy things before and they were pretty good.
The frosting, though, was something that I found online here with a couple of changes of my own.
1 3/4 cups heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 C of Oreo cookie crumbs
Combine the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.
Beat on medium-high speed until the whipped cream holds stiff peaks.
Gently fold in the cookie crumbs with a rubber spatula.
Pipe onto the cupcakes and garnish with Oreo halves.
