Oreo frosting, in my mind, has to be made with cream cheese. As I mentioned when I made my Oreo cookies, I love Oreo cheesecake and I thought that I could, to some degree, replicate the feel of a good Oreo cheesecake in the frosting for my Oreo cupcake. I started with a basic cream cheese frosting and mixed in Oreos and a splash of vanilla extract.
I consider my Oreo frosting a success! It was perfect on the Oreo cupcakes, but it would also be great on any plain chocolate or vanilla cupcake. Even a box mix cupcake would be kicked up many notches if you topped it with homemade Oreo frosting.
