Hi everyone the recipe for the cupcakes are


100g unsalted butter, softened
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 large free-range eggs
1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup milk
¾ cup cocoa powder
1 cup boiling water
Chocolate icing:
1 ½ cup icing sugar mixture
150g butter, softened
120g chocolate, chopped
¼ cup thickened cream
Chocolate drops, to decorate
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with cupcake papers and set aside.
Sift together flour, baking powder in a bowl. Mix cocoa and boiling water together until smooth and allow to cool completely.
In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy then stir in vanilla. Add one egg and beat for one minute, then add the second egg and beat in again for another minute.
Add flour mixture and stir until combined. Add milk and cocoa mixture then beat entire mixture until smooth - for about 3 minutes with an electric beater.
Fill cupcake papers 3/4 full and bake for 13-15 minutes. Stick a butter knife into a cupcake. If it comes out clean, the cupcakes are ready. Remove and cool on a wire rack.

then make chocolate icing with soft butter and beat with an electric beater for 3 minutes
