In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter until smooth. Gradually add brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with buttermilk. (Begin with flour and end with flour) Mix until just incorporated without overmixing. Pour into cupcake liners. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

To make frosting, beat together whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold in Oreo crumbs. Pipe or spread frosting on cupcakes. Top each cupcake with an Oreo cookie.
