-Line the cupcake tins with paper liners. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
-In a separate bowl add the eggs, whole milk, oil, and vanilla.
-Add the bowl containing the eggs, whole milk, oil, and vanilla to the bowl holding the dry ingredients.
-Mix all together until fully incorporated.

4 TBSP heavy whipping cream
Oreo cookies, split apart and the filling removed
-Cream the butter and powdered sugar until it looks light and creamy.
-If it doesn't cream add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it creams.
-Test to see if the frosting can form and hold a stiff peak by taking a spoonful of frosting and turning the spoon upside down. If the frosting stays on the spoon it is ready if not then....
- Add more powdered sugar ½ C at a time.... mix well.
-If ready scoop the frosting into a pastry bag with a large tip.
-Twist the open end of the pastry bag to push the frosting to the tip.
-Start the frosting on the outside edge of the cupcake working to the center of the cupcake.
-Place the separated Oreo as ears on the top of the frosted cupcakes.
-Place the two M & M's on the upper part of the cupcake as eyes.
-Use a #48 pipping tip, also called the basket weave tip, to create the mummy wraps.
