I've been making these cupcakes for ages for friends who visit our house. They always seem to go down well! If you're making a bigger batch and have a range of people to feed, it's sometimes worth making half of the mixture with vanilla extract and half with cocoa powder so that you've got a variety of cakes to choose from.
Sprinkles look really good on these, as do crushed up chocolate button pieces.
The cakes were heavy with no air in to make them light and fluffy. Recipe followed but something can't be right somewhere. - 14 Oct 2012
is 560g of icing sugar wrong because it was obscenely sweet - 06 Oct 2012
my main comment is about the icing, which was very tasty, but required 3 TABLESPOONS of cocoa powder to make it work, as opposed to the half a teaspoon the recipe calls for. Other than that, I thought it was a good recipe. - 14 May 2012
