Cupcakes with white chocolate :)

Collected Darragh from school today & he wanted to bake some cakes so we made Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttericing & white chocolate decoration :)

We started with the basic chocolate cupcake mix  ( feeling of dejavu typing this ....lol)

Basic recipe for the cupcakes

8oz Plain Flour
8oz Caster sugar
8oz Real butter
1 Tsps of madagascar vanilla
4 Free range eggs
1 1/2 Tblsps organic Green & Blacks Cocoa powder
2 Tsp of baking powder


Beat butter until pale in colour
Add sugar & beat for 5 mins
Add eggs one by one & then add vanilla beat slowly
Combine flour,cocoa & baking powder together & sift into bowl,mix very slowly for
2 minutes only.
Scoop into your cases & bake at 155 in a fan oven for 15 min

Scoop out the centre of the cupcake

Using a large icing bag ( I made 48 so had lots of icing...lol) & a Wilton 2A icing tube

Pipe the icing into the centre & up on top of the cake in a small swirl motion...

Drizzel white chocolate over the cake & Voilla good enough to eat....lol
