Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 12 capacity muffin tin or use cupcake papers.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter, oil and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and beat for about a minute.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt.
Slowly add a third of the flour mix, alternating with the buttermilk, ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined ensuring you do not over mix.
Crush the oreos to the size you would like and gently fold into the mixture.
Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin tin.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
To make the frosting, beat the butter, cream cheese and vanilla until fluffy and smooth. Incorporate the powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk, beating until well incorporated. Depending on your desired consistency you may wish to add more sugar or milk.Stir in the crushed Oreos.
Pipe the frosting onto the fully cooled cupcakes and decorate as desired.
