  1. Cupcake: Preheat oven to 170 degrees C. Line a 12 hole cupcake tin with paper cases.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, bicarb and baking powder.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar, then gradually beat in the slightly softened butter.
  4. Combine the two mixtures gradually, beating well after each addition.
  5. Mix in the buttermilk and beat until smooth. Add the milk to thin the mixture slightly.
  6. Take the tops off the Oreos and place the filling side up, in a paper cupcake case. Top with the cake mixture. Repeat with 11 more cases.
  7. Bake in the oven for approximately 20 minutes. Allow the cupcakes to cool before adding the icing.
  8. To Serve: Once cool, spread the vanilla icing over each cupcake. Add sprinkles. Split the remaining Oreo sides in half, and place on top
