Oreo Buttercream Cupcakes Recipe and Video Tutorial

I think my favorite thing about making cupcakes is that I make them for my family. It's something that even though I've made them a million times before, they still get excited. They really enjoy my buttercream frosting so when my oldest daughter made the suggestion to use my buttercream recipe and mix in Oreo's my response was, "Hey, why not?" Not only did they turn out beautifully but they tasted just like an Oreo cookie and they still had the familiar flavor of my homemade buttercream. So here it is: My Oreo Buttercream Cupcakes Recipe! Make sure to check out my video tutorial for this dessert.
