TO MAKE THE CHOCOLATE OREO CUPCAKE FROSTING:  Using a standing mixer, beat the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream until all is combined, so the frosting is smooth and stiff with peaks.

Topping the cupcakes : Using the ice cream scooper, scoop out some vanilla frosting and top it onto the cupcakes. Use the mini angled spatula to smooth out the frosting into a thick mound. Repeat steps to the remaining cupcakes.

Using the frosting that you have left, beat in the crushed Oreo cookies and then scoop that frosting into the piping bag. Pipe dollops on top of the vanilla frosting and then top with and Oreo cookie.
