Oreo Martian Cupcakes Are Out Of This World

Eye know….again with the cupcakes. But look at all of this eye candy! I could look at these guys all day long. If I was that French chick, Hélène Smith, I could even chat in Martian with them.

These chocolate cupcakes are really delicious with their cream cheese-Oreo filling and marshmallow icing. And those eyes!!!
