Oreo Buttercream Frosting – need I say more?
Why yes, yes I do!
We happen to be positioned in a perfect location that we get a TON of foot traffic on Wednesday nights as everyone in town passes our house to go to an outdoor concert.
And every week she sells homemade fresh squeezed lemonade as well as homemade gourmet cupcakes.
All the money raised goes into a college fund and every week the cupcake flavor is a mystery.
Last year, 2015, was our first year in business.
We gained quite a few regular customers – some for the cupcakes, and some for the lemonade – and we made a lot of new friends!
To kick off the year we decided to start the 2016 cupcake and lemonade season with Oreo Cupcakes with Oreo Buttercream Frosting.
Three weeks later, we still have customers talking about the Oreo buttercream frosting and how absolutely amazing it was.
Well my dear friends, you too can make this frosting!
Not only is it amazing with Oreo Cupcakes, but on any kind of cake as a filling or frosting.
I am a HUGE fan of buttercream frosting.
As in it’s my go-to generally for cakes and cupcakes.
However this Oreo Buttercream is now my #1 favorite because it literally tastes just like an Oreo.
One lick and you too will be hooked!
My only tip is that if piping the frosting, you can only use an open round tip as there are hunks of Oreo in the frosting, and those will clog up tight icing tips.
Go on, don’t be shy, whip up this perfect Oreo Buttercream Frosting for your next cake or cupcakes!

- 10 Oreo Cookies
- 1 cup salted butter, room temperature
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
- In a food processor or blender, pulverize Oreo's into a powder. Set aside.
- Mix butter together with powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time, until all blended.
- Add vanilla and heavy cream and mix well.
- Add crushed Oreo's and blend well.
- Spread onto cake or pipe onto cupcakes.
If piping this onto cupcakes, use a LARGE open tip as hunks of the Oreo Powder will get clogged in smaller piping tips.
