Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

I made these cupcakes for our 14 yr old's Birthday Party. I made this in cake form before. It's one of my most searched posts. She wanted teal frosting (to match her room & decorations). Sorry I don't have any other photos, I hurried and took these literally as guests were arriving. Every bite of these had an oreo cookie piece, yum. I frosted these with a big star tip #828 and added a gumball for decoration.
