Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 12 hole cupcake tin with paper cases.
Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Spoon evenly into prepared cupcake tins until approximately two-thirds full.
Bake 12 -15mins or until they spring back when touched lightly or a skewer comes out cleanly. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
Buttercream Icing: Beat cream cheese and butter together until well combined. Add icing sugar and beat well. If the icing is too thick and stiff add milk or water a tablespoon at a time to adjust the consistency (make sure you beat well between each addition as it won't take much for the icing to get thin). Add colour as desired.
Vanilla Buttercream: Beat ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract into the icing (as above).
Filling Cupcakes: Take a cupcake and using a small circle cutter, push into the centre of the cupcake (don't push too deep). Remove cutter and take centre out of cake. Spoon a teaspoon of the filling into the cake and pipe buttercream icing over the top to decorate.
Sarah's Cookies and Cream Cheese Filling: Beat cream cheese in a bowl to soften. Cut up Oreos into chunks then mix into cream cheese.
White Chocolate and Raspberry Filling: Melt white chocolate, mix cream and raspberry powder into white chocolate, mix well.
