Baptism cupcakes :)

It was me and my friend's baptism on Monday (25th April). It was a lovely day with the sunshine out as well ^^
With the friend having hayfever, it would be nasty getting her flowers so I decided to bake cupcakes for her instead! If you remember my birthday cupcakes, she was the fantastic baker!

I omitted the fudge frosting as I had to write on them, however you can always add in the frosting as an extra treat =] Chocolate fudge cupcakes...mmmmmmm =P 

Topped up with some bunny and chick marshmallows to match the 'easter' theme..

And here's the recipe! : 
For 12 Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes

125g lightly salted butter, softened
150g light muscovado sugar
2 eggs
100g self raising flour
50g cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder

Fudge frosting
100g plain or milk chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons milk
50g unsalted butter
75g icing sugar

Line a 12-section bun tray with paper cake cases. Put the butter, muscovado sugar, eggs, flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a bowl and beat with a hand-held electric whisk for about a minute until light and creamy. Divide the cake mixture evenly between the paper cases and bake in a preheated oven, 180c/350f/gas mark 4 for 20 minutes or until risen and just firm to touch. Transfer to a wire rack.
Make the fudge frosting: Put the chocolate, milk and butter in a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring until the chocolate and butter have melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the icing sugar until smooth. Spread the frosting over the tops of the cupcakes while still warm.
