I don't have a recipe, but I share your challenge of references to 'sticks' in most U.S. written recipes.

A handy butter conversion tool that can help you use recipes written for sticks etc., is http://www.onlineconversion...

Glad to have onlineconversion myself. Do y'all use tablespoons in the UK? A stick of butter is 8 tablespoons.

By the way, I've decided it's time to buy a better kitchen scale. Maybe digital?

Cooks in the UK, and other parts of the world, do have tablespoon measures....but the UK and US tablespoons are different (1 tablespoon [UK] = 1.250 333 2 tablespoon [US]), as are the teaspoons. So depending on the ingredient, it can make a noticeable difference.

My baking improved and became more consistent when I switched to weights. I tried a non-digital and then picked up a digital model when I found I had a tough time getting precision for small amounts. The extra bonus is having fewer dishes to wash, and ease of moving between metric and imperial systems.

Here's a recipe for an oreo cake. You should be able to adapt it to cupcakes rather easily. Can't say I have made it, but I can't see how you can go wrong. Really any deep chocolate cake with a marshmallow frosting, covered with chopped oreos should work.
