My intent: Chocolate cupcakes from a box & homemade "Oreo" frosting
Disaster! Who forgot to put chocolate cake mix on the shopping list? *sheesh, it was me*
1 box white cake mix (follow the recipe on the box)
Oreo crumbs (to taste)
Bakerella's Cookies and Cream Frosting (thanks Sugar on the Brain!)
Tweeks for the Future! Less sweet frosting. Don't get me wrong, this "little baby loves shortening, shortening" but that was just too much sugar.
I've tapped two alternative recipes with the potential for great taste with out the sugar punch: Kirby's cravings has a lighter frosting cum filling recipe along with Pastry Girl who uses whipped heavy cream & chocolate wafer cookies (which I have a heck of a time finding!)
