Chocolate Icing recipe12 oz / 340g icing sugar (about 3 cups)6oz / 170g butter¼ cup cocoa1 teaspoon vanilla essence2 - 3 tablespoons hot water
To decorate:about 36 small candied eggs
You will need 2 muffin trays and paper muffin cups.
- Preheat the oven to 400° F / 200° C.
- Place paper cups in the muffin tray holes.
- Cream the butter and sugar until the mixture is thick and pale.
- Add the eggs and continue mixing.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder and cocoa.
- Alternating, fold the flour mixture and the milk into the butter mixture. The mixture should be a fairly thick dropping consistency.
- Fill the cupcake papers two thirds full. Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out just clean.
- Place the cupcakes on wire racks to cool. When completely cold, place the icing in an icing bag and decorate the cupcakes in swirls that resemble a nest. Decorate with colored eggs. Alternatively, you can use a palette knife or similar and just smooth the frosting onto the cupcakes and decorate with eggs (the easier option!)
