Recipe: Oreo Cupcakes

I made these for my son’s 7th birthday party recently and everyone loved! They are fairly easy apart from the spiral icing which I hadn’t done before. I’m sure I will get better with practice!

Note: These are ‘may contain milk’ as they contain Mini Oreos which have a ‘may contain milk’ warning.
