These Homemade Funfetti Oreo Surprise Cupcakes are the perfect celebration treat and they're simple to make.


  • For the Cupcakes:
  • cups cake flour
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • cups granulated sugar
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles
  • 24 Oreo cookies
  • For the Frosting:
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening such as Crisco
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups powdered sugar approximately 1 lb.
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream or milk
  • 12 Oreo cookies crushed
  • sprinkles
  • maraschino cherries optional


  • For the Cupcakes: 
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 24 muffin cups with paper baking cups. Place one cookie in each cup.
  • Prepare cake mix. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the cake flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut softened butter into 1/2 inch cubes and add a few cubes at a time until all of the butter is incorporated. Mixture will be crumbly.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating slowly. Pour in the milk and vanilla. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes until batter is smooth. Fold in the sprinkles.
  • Divide batter evenly over cookies in prepared muffin cups. Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.
  • For the Frosting: 
  • Beat shortening and butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly add in vanilla extract and half of the powdered sugar.
  • Gradually add in the heavy cream (or milk), followed by the rest of the powdered sugar. Finally, fold in crushed Oreo cookies.
  • Place frosting in decorating bag fitted with large round tip. Pipe frosting on top of each cupcake. Top with sprinkles and maraschino cherries if desired.
