You will NEED:

60g Dark Eating Chocolate, chopped 1/2 cup water 90g Butter 110g Coconut Sugar (Use Brown sugar if you wish) 2 eggs 100g Self Raising Flour 40g Almond Meal 2 Tablespoons Cacao Powder (You can use Cocoa Powder if you wish)

1. Preheat oven to 170C (340F). Line muffin pan with cupcake liners. 2. Add Chocolate to water in microwave safe bowl/measuring jug. And melt Chocolate by microwaving for 30 second burst until Chocolate melts, stirring after each 30 seconds. 3. Beat the softened butter, sugar and eggs in a bowl. Add flour, almond meal and Cacao powder and combine well. 4. Add Chocolate water mix and stir until well combined. 5. Divide mixture into cupcake liners. 6. Bake about 40-45 minutes. Check by inserting a cake tester or toothpick. Should come out dry without wet batter. 7. Allow to cool completely on wire rack before icing.


130g Butter, soften 4 cups Icing mixture Little bit of milk

1. Beat butter quickly, add in one cup of icing sugar at a time on low speed. Continue to add the rest of the icing sugar until everything is well combined. 2. Add in a little splash of milk at a time until you reach a runny consistancy. You do not want it to be super duper runny, but still runny enough to pour. 3. Add flavouring if you wish. 4. Divide into 4 bowls, keeping a small portion of white icing. 5. Colour the largest portion black, the second largest portion dark blue, the rest purple and pink. Add each colour into a piping bag and snip of the smallest corner of the tip. 6. Decorate cupcakes as shown in video.
