Cookies & Cream cupcakes are my new favorite cupcakes. They look as good as they taste. These Oreo cupcakes are extra special since they have heavy cream instead of milk in the batter. I guess its only right hence the name Cookies & Cream.
The other cupcakes are vanilla cupcakes with different flavored buttercream toppings. I mashed sweet ripe strawberries and lemon zest into the buttercream to bring out the fruity notes. With the Vanilla topping I also added some cream cheese to give it a slight tang. I think I prefer this to normal buttercream since it mellows out the flavour and the butter doesnt over power the cupcake base.Add a sprinkling of Loaker and vanilla wafer sticks and hey presto you've got yourself one delicious Vanilla Cupcake.
