This Instructable is for my Rascally Rabbits cupcakes, an idea I came up with a while ago when helping a friend brainstorm cupcake decoration ideas and I finally got around to making them! 

For these cupcakes I used the base recipe for Strawberry Chocolaty Cupcakes from the Hamyln 200 Cupcakes book and some simple buttercream icing. The recipe below is enough for 12 large cupcakes and a generous amount of icing for each.

For the Cupcakes you'll need:
  • 75g cocoa powder (I used Bounville to make them extra chocolaty!)
  • 225 ml boiling water
  • 125g lightly salted butter
  • 275g light muscavado sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
For the buttercream icing you'll need:
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 250g icing sugar
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons of hot water
For the decorations you'll need:
  • Grey fondant
  • Orange fondant
  • Green fondant
  • White fondant
  • 3 Cadbury's Flakes
  • 1 small Bournvile bar
  • Black icing pen
  • Balsa Wood
  • Cocktail sticks
  • PVA Glue
Tools and things:
  • Cupcake Cases (I used Buffin cases, halfway between a bun and a muffin, also the only ones I could find in brown)
  • Weighing Scales
  • Measuring spoons
  • Mixing bowls
  • Hand held electric mixer
  • Metal spoons
  • Muffin Tin
  • Wire rack
  • Cupcake decorating tools (Or cheap kids modeling tools from an art shop) 
  • Parchment paper / grease proof paper
  • Sharp knife
  • Piping bag
What I was listening too (I love my baking beats):
  • CAKE - Comfort Eagle / Fashion Nugget
