Oreo Cupcakes | Recipe

Ingredients (makes 12)
For the cupcakes:
175g butter
165g caster sugar
3 eggs
40g cocoa powder
125g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
12 oreos
For the icing:
1/2 pack oreos crushed
6 oreos halved for the topping
250g butter
500g icing sugar
*i used 2 packs of oreo's all together*

Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees and putting the cupcake cases into the muffin tin. Then mix together the butter and caster sugar until its creamy and smooth. Then crack the eggs into a separate bowl to avoid getting any shell into the cake mix. Then add the eggs to your mixture and mix it together on a slow speed. Then fold in all your dry ingredients (cocoa powder, flour and baking powder) and mix on a slow speed until your mixture is smooth. Now pop an oreo into the bottom of each cupcake case and then carefully spoon the mixture into each case, filling them about three quarters full.
Pop them in the oven for 15-20 minutes (mine took 18). You know they're done when you stick a knife into the centre of them and it comes out clean!
To make the frosting simply mix your butter on its own for at least 5 minutes, until its paler and creamy. Then add the icing sugar a little bit at a time on a slow speed and when it's all in, mix it together on a high speed for another 5 minutes. This will help make the icing light and fluffy and easier to pipe!
When your cakes are out of the oven and called down, simply put the icing in a piping bag (i used a wilton 1M nozzle) and pipe:) then for decoration add your half oreos as a topping!
