  1. Step 1:

    Before you start:
    Pre-heat the oven to 180c/160c fan/Gas 4
    Pop the 9 cupcake cases into the cupcake tray

  2. Step 2:

    In a large bowl, mix together the softened butter, caster sugar, flour and cocoa blend, eggs and milk with a spoon. Once combined, spoon the mixture into the paper cases until half full and bake for 20-25 mins.

  3. Step 3:

    To check your cupcakes are baked throughout, insert the tip of a knife into the sponge. If ready, the knife will be clean when removed.  Cool in the cases on a wire rack.

  4. Step 4:

    To make glace icing, add a couple of teaspoons of warm water to the icing sugar, until the consistency becomes smooth and glossy.  Spoon the icing onto each cake and decorate with sprinkles!
