To make the cupcakes:

  2. Place the sugar, flour, cake flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Mix in the butter on low speed, until the mixture resembles moist crumbs (about 2 minutes).
  4. Stir in the eggs,one at a time, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula after each addition.
  5. Add the Greek yogurt and vanilla, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl to be sure all the ingredients are well-combined.
  6. Beat on medium speed for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, to aerate the batter and build the cake’s structure.
  7. Fill lined cupcake wells just over half full (approx. 1/4 cup of batter).

  9. Cool completely before frosting.

  4. Pour the heavy cream down the side of the mixing bowl, in a slow and steady stream, while whipping.
  5. Add the crushed Oreo cookie crumbs, folding in gently until just barely combined.
  6. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag fitted with a use a 4B tip.
