Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Cupcakes

Friday nights are movie nights. One Friday we decided to watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. In honor of the movie I made some Speghetti with Meatballs Cupcakes. The cupcakes were made using the Almond Sour Cream Cake recipe. I placed the cupcakes on the a plate and then covered them all messily with buttercream icing squeezed through a round tip. I placed the meatballs (oreo truffles) on top of the noodles and spooned homemade strawberry jam over the whole thing. MMM MMM Yummy! I have seen ferrero rocher chocolates used as the meatballs. However, Lil' E is allergic to nuts.
Oreo Truffles
1 pkg. of oreos finely crushed
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S semi sweet chocolate, melted
Mix the oreo crumbs and cream cheese together. Shape into balls. Dip into melted chocolate. Set aside on wax paper to set.
