    3. Using a large spoon place equal amounts of mixture into the 12 cupcake cases. Place in the oven (near the top) and bake for 15 to 20 minutes – until firm to touch.
    4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
    5. Place the butter into a bowl, stir in the icing sugar and vanilla extract using a wooden spoon, then whisk until fluffy.
    6. Then spread the buttercream onto the cakes with a warm spoon or for a more proffesional look put the icing into a piping bag and squeeze plenty onto each cupcake.
    7. Decorate using chocolate curls. To make the curls take a vegtable peeler or a cheese slicer and run it along the chocolate until you get proffesional looking chocolate decorations
