Death by Oreo Cupcakes
As the name implies, these cupcakes are to die for! They're just the right amount of sweet and salty, and make for an absolutely adorable presentation on the table. Some of the Kitchen Crew was even heard to say that these are the best cupcakes they'd ever had!!
I think Oreo's have a Halloween edition with orange filling, add color to icing and decorate with candy corn and licorice.
