  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°c / 160°c fan and prepare 12 cupcake cases

  2. Step 2:

    Beat together the unsalted butter/baking spread and light brown sugar until light and creamy.

  3. Step 3:

    Add the eggs, self raising flour, cocoa powder and vanilla extract and beat again until smooth.

  4. Step 4:

    Split evenly between the cupcake cases and bake in the oven for 20-22 minutes or until baked.

  5. Step 5:

    Once baked, leave to cool fully.

  6. Step 6:

    For the buttercream, carefully melt the Kinder chocolate until smooth. I prefer to do this in the microwave.

  7. Step 7:

    Leave the Kinder chocolate to cool for a few minutes.

  8. Step 8:

    Beat the unsalted butter on its own for a few minutes to loosen it.

  9. Step 9:

    Add the icing sugar one half at a time and beat fully each time to combine

  10. Step 10:

    Add the melted and cooled Kinder chocolate and beat again.

  11. Step 11:

    If required, add one tablespoon of double cream and beat fully to make it lovely and smooth. 

  12. Step 12:

    For the decoration, use your favourite piping tip (Jane uses a 2D closed star) and pipe the buttercream onto the cupcake.
