    These are mini fairy cakes so they are a nice size for kids. They are easy and so quick to make, too. Children can decorate them any way they like. Feel free to use whatever type of chocolate you prefer. We have fun making these every year!

    I love peanut butter and I love cake, so thought I'd mix them both together. Took a basic muffin recipe, did a few tweaks and added half a jar of crunchy peanut butter, tut tut.

    These chocolate muffins are baked with pieces of milky Kinder Chocolate bars. My children love them. For my children's birthdays I decorate them with melted Kinder Chocolate and chocolate buttons, but they taste heavenly even without icing.

    Make sure you use cute, colourful cupcake cases to make these scrummy cupcakes look even more appealing. I use this recipe time and time again... It's so versatile - you can pretty much do anything you like, adding fruit to the sponge, using different coloured icing and decorations, etc. Just have some fun!

    These were a bit of an improvisation when I had some spare raspberries and jar of lemon curd. They make a really indulgent treat, but are not as heavy as a chocolatey treat.

    These cupcakes are very rich in chocolate and are, in addition, topped with whipped cream and grated chocolate! Since the cupcakes are so rich, the whipped cream is a welcome change from the heavy icing you normally find on cupcakes.
