Ingredients

  • Cake mix { yellow and chocolate + ingredients listed in the box}
  • 600 gr White chocolate {better if it’s specially for melting. Avoid chips}
  • 300 gr Heavy cream {no less than 33% fat}
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • Food colouring
  • Sprinkles optional.
  • 10 Oreos.

Instructions

  1. For best results I suggest making the frosting the day before you plan on decorating the cupcakes. This frosting is basically a whipped white chocolate ganache.
  2. Measure your heavy cream in grams so I definitely suggest using a scale for this. Also measure your white chocolate and leave it in a bowl.
  3. In a small saucepan pour your heavy creamed bring JUST to a boil, when you see first bubbles on the edges, remove from heat.
  4. Pour the heated cream over the chocolate. Make sure it covers all the white chocolate and let it sit for a couple minutes.
  5. Then stir the cream and chocolate until it’s all melted, smooth and incorporated. If for some reason you see some pieces of chocolate that didn’t melt, give it a few shots in the microwave on low power 10 seconds at a time until it’s all melted and smooth.
  6. The mixture will turn yellow and that’s normal, it will lighten as it cools and then will lighten even more after wiping it.
  7. Place a piece of plastic film on top of the ganache making sure it touches the ganache to avoid skin to be formed. Let it come to room temperature or over night. It doesn’t require fridge at this point.
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). *Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners and set aside {2 if making 24}.
  9. Prepare cake mix according to directions and If you want to make only a few cupcakes, you can get only yellow cake mix, prepare it according to box directions, divide it in 2 batches and add 4 to 5 tbsp of cocoa powder and 3 extra tbsp of milk to one half.
  10. Bake according to box directions.
  11. Once your ganache is cool, whip it up with a hand mixer on medium-high speed. Whip to JUST until it lightens and increase in volume add vanilla while whipping. Don’t whip more than 2 to 3 min because the ganache tends to get grainy and even separate.
  12. Prepare 3 small bowls.
  13. In one, pour about 3 to 4 spoonfuls of the frosting
  14. The rest of the frosting dive in 2.
  15. Crush the oreos with a food processor so it gets really, really fine crumbs and add it to the first bowl with less frosting. Mix it together with a spatula with soft motions. Put it in a piping bag with or without tip. This is your Grey Stuff! Yummmm!
  16. The other two just add colouring food, one yellow, the other blue and mix until you get the desired shade. Put then in piping bags with your favourite tips in them. Set in the fridge for a few minutes.
  17. In the meantime, using an apple corer gently hollow out the center of each cupcake, not going through the whole depth of the cupcake.
  18. Pipe your cookies n’ cream frosting in each hole and put back the very top piece of each center.
  19. Take your frosting from the fridge and pipe with blue frosting your chocolate cupcakes and with yellow frosting your vanilla cupcakes.
  20. Decorate with sprinkles if desire.
  21. Serve and celebrate!
