August 8, 2016 - By Mumazine Guest


125g butter, at room temperature
125g golden caster sugar
110g self-raising flour
2 ½ tablespoons cocoa powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon orange zest, grated
50 g plain chocolate chips
5 tablespoons ready-made buttercream icing

To decorate:

Chocolate buttons
M&Ms (chocolate)
Tube white chocolate writing icing
Jelly beans
Giant chocolate buttons
White chocolate buttons
Hundreds and thousands
Heart-shaped chocolates

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F. Beat together the butter and sugar until the mixture is fluffy and smooth.

2. Sift together the flour and cocoa powder in a separate bowl. Add the eggs to the creamed butter mixture, a little at a time, adding a tablespoon of the flour mixture with the second egg.

3. Mix in the orange zest and the remaining flour and cocoa, until blended. Finally, stir in the chocolate pieces.

4. Line a large muffin tray with 10 paper cases and fill each one until two-thirds full. Bake the muffins for 20–22 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then remove the muffins and place on a wire cooling rack.

5. When the cupcakes are cool, spread a little buttercream over each of the cupcakes and then decorate them to look like goldfish.
