Death By Oreo Cupcakes

They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor. So, in this recipe there is Oreo's in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That's right, you put a whole Oreo at the bottom of the cake. The cookie stays firm, which makes it a little interesting to eat against the soft cake, but it actually gave a really yummy crunch. Overall this is an amazing cake. Super full of flavor and so fun!! Enjoy :)
Estimated Cooking Time: About 25 to 30 minutes

1 package Oreo Cookies, regular size
1 package Mini Oreo Cookies, for decoration (optional)
1 package chocolate cake mix (mix according to directions on box)
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temperature
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
cupcake liners

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix packaged cake mix according to directions (do not bake). Line cupcake tins with liner, place a regular size Oreo cookie in the bottom of each liner. Take 1/2 of remaining cookies and chop coarsely and add to cake mix. Fill the cupcake tins. Bake for 15 minutes (or according to box directions). While cupcakes are baking make the frosting.

Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla, then add powdered sugar slowly until blended well. Chop remaining regular-sized Oreos very fine (I put the cookies in the food processor instead of trying to chop them up super fine and it worked out really well). Add to frosting. After cupcakes have cooled frost and decorate with Mini Oreos.

Not all plus size figures are the same, as some heavier people have narrower waists and larger hips while others are more apple shaped body. Finding for quality-made plus size swimsuit is often good way to find flattering features such as slenderizing tummy control panel or supportive built-in bra. If you choose darker, solid colors in swimwear, these can be slimming, yet if you love color, don't shy away from more colorful plus size bathing suit.

The important thing to remember when looking for colorful full-figured swimwear is to choose pieces in colors that work for your body rather than against it. Hence, classic, flattering type of plus size bathing suit is one with darker background color and curved, inserted strips of different colors along the sides to help visually create slimmer waist. These types of swimwear design tend to look sporty and timeless as well as tasteful.

Other ways to use color to your benefits is to choose vertical striping. Again, the particular colours don't matter as long as they are flattering to your skin and ones you feel good in. Vertical stripes of colors, especially ones that aren't too wide, can make fuller, rounder bodies appear more elongated and slender. This is another type of plus size bathing swimsuit design that can work for both one-piece swimwears for women. Another slimming use of color for women's one-piece plus size bathing swimsuits is darker bottom section with colorful printed top part that may feature fun floral or other pattern.

If you're full-figured woman with smaller waist, you may want to opt for two-piece rather than one-piece bathing swimsuit. Choose two-piece plus size bathing swimsuit with supportive rather than skimpy features though, such as good built-in bra and bottoms that have flattering cut for the stomach and thighs. For one-piece plus size swimsuit option to accentuate small waist, belt or sash accent may be great choice.
