This is a terrible picture of a really delicious cupcake. Last week for Project Runway Night (I usually have people over to watch it) I made oreo cupcakes. I basically just took your standard wacky cake recipe, subbed black cocoa powder for half of the regular stuff, and topped them with with a buttercream-ish frosting with crushed generic oreos mixed in. Originally I made a shortening-based frosting for them, because I wanted it to be white, but I had my suspicions about my shortening and one taste of the frosting confirmed it: rancid. So gross. So I scrapped that and made up an Earth Balance-based frosting that was delicious. These were a big hit.
