A little 'birdie' told us that these golf cupcakes would make a great gift for Father's Day. You can always rely on a chocolate cupcake to give that 'hole in one' feeling


  1. Heat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Line a cup cake tray with 12 paper cupcake cases.

  2. Place the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until light and fluffy.

    • 150g Unsalted Butter
    • 150g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (We like Billinngton's)
  3. Gradually beat in the eggs a little at a time until smooth, adding a little flour if the mixture curdles.

    • 3 Large Free Range Egg(s)
  4. Stir in the flour and cocoa powder until smooth.

    • 125g Self Raising White Flour
    • 25g Cocoa Powder
  5. Place heaped dessert-spoon full in each cupcake case and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely.

  6. To make the buttercream; mix the butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy. Keep aside a small amount of the buttercream in a seperate bowl then add a drop of food colouring to the remaining buttercream to colour it green. Spread the green buttercream on top of each cupcake.

    • 50g Unsalted Butter
    • 175g Icing Sugar (We like Silver Spoon)
  7. With the remaining white buttercream spread a small amount on top of the green icing for the bunker and then sprinkle lightly with the light muscovado sugar for sand.

  8. Roll small balls of sugar paste icing then using a cocktail stick, make the dimples over the balls and place on the cake. Decorate with cocktails stick and paper flags.
