Cake:
Preheat oven to 350ยบ and line up 24 muffin cups in pan. Twist apart 24 Oreos. Place the wafer with the filling on it, filling side-up, in the bottom of the paper liner. Cut other wafers in half. Save 24 halves to place in the frosting. Crush other wafer halves, also for garnishing. Cut the remaining Oreo cookies into quarters with a sharp knife. Toss with 2 tablespoons flour and set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter until fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add the milk and vanilla. Mix to combine. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to butter mixture. Mix until integrated. Stir in sugar. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat for 30 seconds. Turn the mixer up to medium speed and beat for 2 minutes. Add the egg whites. Beat for 2 more minutes. Stir in the quartered cookies. Fill the cupcake liners three-quarters full. Bake for about 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pan.
