Oreo Cupcakes With Oreo Buttercream

Oreo Cupcakes With Oreo Buttercream

Several individuals did not understand the instructions for these Oreo Cupcakes With Oreo Buttercream.  So I included the video which explains how to make these cakes.  Lynn does a beautiful job demonstrating how easy it is to make them.  It is a must watch video.  Her cupcakes are frosted using a piping bag with a star tip.

Some individuals wanted to know if you make these cupcakes without a stand-up mixer.  Yes you can.  You can use a hand-held electric mixer or you can mix it all together with a whisk and spoon.  Takes some elbow grease until all the ingredients are mixed well.

Tide and Thyme made the same cupcakes.  Frosted them with a jumbo round tip instead of the star tipped as shown in video.  See frosting picture below with round tip.

If you don’t have buttermilk, according to Joy The Baker………… can make homemade buttermilk substitutions for baking according to the following:

The Best Buttermilk Substitutes

Milk and Lemon or Vinegar
In a 1-cup measuring cup, add 1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.  Top the lemon juice with skim, low fat or whole milk.  Stir and let sit for two minutes.  After two minutes, your milk is both acidic and curdled.  If you need 2 cups of buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar to the milk.  Two tablespoons aren’t necessary.

Milk and Yogurt
Stir 1/4 cup milk into 3/4 cup plain yogurt to create a nicely thick buttermilk substitute.

Milk and Cream of Tartar
Stir together 1 cup of milk and 1 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar.  To ensure that the mixture doesn’t get lumpy, mix the cream of tartar with 2 Tablespoons of milk.  Once mixed add the rest of the cup of milk.  Cream of tartar is an acid and will simulate the acidic environment of buttermilk in a pinch.

Non-Dairy Option: Almond Milk and Yogurt (with a splash of vinegar)
Stir 1/4 cup almond milk into 3/4 cup almond milk yogurt.  Add a splash (about 1/2 teaspoon) vinegar to the mixture and stir well.  Soy milk and yogurt can also be substituted for the almond milk products.

I make no guarantees how your cupcakes will turn out with the buttermilk substitutions.  But in a pinch, it’s worth a try………..especially for those who don’t have buttermilk available.

I understand a substitute for vegetable shortening is butter or margarine.
