Recipe: Easter Egg Cupcakes

Easter Egg Cupcakes

With Easter not long away, I have decide I would make some Easter Cupcakes to cake me in the mood and this is how I did it:
8oz Margarine
8oz Caster Sugar
8oz Self-Raising Flour
4 Eggs
2 and a half Tablespoons of cocoa powder (I used Cadbury Bourneville)

To decorate the cupcakes:
5oz Margarine
10oz Icing Sugar
1M Wilton Piping Nozzle
Disposable Piping Bag
Mini Eggs

How to make:
1. Preheat your oven to 180 C (gas mark 4) and line to bun trays with bun cases (makes around 24 buns) 
2. Using an electric hand mixer mix together margarine, caster sugar, flour and eggs and cocoa powder
3. Spoon the mixture into the bun cases and place into the oven for 20 minutes
4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool
5. Mix the Icing Sugar and Margarine together to form the butter cream
6. Place the butter cream into the piping bag (I just used a disposable one) and pipe the icing starting inwards and work outwards until the cupcake is covered and to finish place mini eggs in the middle

Other ways to make butter cream can be found on the BBC food website here
