Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting

Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting

When you don’t have time to make a cake (or cupcake in this case) from scratch, a good alternative is to focus on the frosting.  That way the cupcakes still have that homemade touch.  This time around I made a chocolate cupcake from a cake mix and topped it with a big helping of Oreo Cream Cheese frosting.  Oh ya.

Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz. Cream Cheese (softened)

2 Tbs. Unsalted Butter (softened)

1/4  tsp. Salt

1 tsp.  Vanilla

3 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar

12 Oreos (finely crushed)

4 Oreos (finely crushed and reserved for the topping)


Cream the softened cream cheese, softened unsalted butter, salt and vanilla together.  Once smooth, gradually add the powdered sugar.  Beat until combined.  I crushed the Oreos in a food processor so that they were a fine consistency.  Add 12 finely crushed Oreos to the cream cheese frosting mixture.  Crush 4 more Oreos and use them as a topping for the frosting if desired.


Chocolate Cupcakes with Oreo Frosting

I recently used this Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting recipe for my daughters 5th birthday party.  I made these cute personalized watercolor pennant flags as cupcake toppers.  The pennants are made from the Flag Pics shapes in the Silhouette Online Store.  I cut them out with my Silhouette CAMEO and then watercolored them in a variety of colors.  I have been working on my hand lettering and I hand lettered each girls name onto the cupcake topper.  The girls loved looking for their own personal cupcake!
