Very Simple Oreo Cupcakes with Cookie Frosting

I have wanted to make these for a while now but have had the little snag that the Oreos available to me here were not vegan, however, recently they have started importing the properly made Oreos that don’t have the milk powder in them, so when I found them I went all dreamy eyed and bought a box of mini Oreos and went straight to my kitchen to make the ever elusive Oreo Cupcakes!
