Oreo Cookie Cupcakes

There are so many aspects of blogging that I love. Photography has definitely become one of them. I started to blog to showcase my recipes and share them with others. As I continued to blog, however, I began to realize how important pictures are! Now that school is over for the summer, I finally have some free time to learn more about my camera and take an online photography class. I'm so excited!!
Now to the recipe... I made these cupcakes for my coworkers and they loved them! I wanted to do something fun yet simple enough that everyone would love them! Who doesn't love an oreo cookie?! I love how the cookie crumbs are mixed throughout the cake and frosting.
