Chocolate Cupcakes

These are yummy and easy cupcakes to make with the kids. Big Bee and Little Bee were out on their bikes this afternoon so the Wee Man & I decided to bake. His favourite sweets are Smarties, so I fished out a packet from leftover Easter eggs. The toping is Silverspoon chocolate cake covering, stuff that comes in a wee sachet and you melt it in a bowl of warm water -perfect for kids to do.

Cake recipe -

200g caster sugar
200g self raising flour (then remove 2 tblspoons and replace with 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder)
200g butter softened
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Chocolate topping/Smarties to decorate

Preheat the oven to 180C. Cream the sugar & the butter together. Sift in the flour & baking powder then add the eggs. Combine altogether using an electric whisk or mixer. Spoon the mixture into 12 cupcake cases, and put in the oven for about 15/20  minutes. Remove & cool the cakes. Once completely cooled, add the melted cake topping & Smarties, then allow to set.
