  1. Step 1:

    Before you start:
    Pre-Heat the oven to 180c/160c Fan/gas 4.
    Pop 6 of the muffin 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 ¾ full and bake for 25 - 30 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:

    Make the buttercream by mixing the icing sugar, butter and milk, until smooth

  5. Step 5:

    Once cooled, take a cutlery knife and cut a small hole, 1-2cm deep in the middle of each muffin.  Fill each hole with sprinkles, then replace the cake with buttercream, using the back of a spoon to create a swirl.
