Ingredients
 

  • 115 g soft salted butter
  • 115 g caster sugar
  • pinch vanilla powder
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 115 g self raising flour
  • 10 g cocoa powder
  • 55 g chopped bitter chocolate
  • 12 chocolate ice cream cones
  • 200 g melted dark chocolate
  • ready to roll green icing
  • ready to roll yellow icing
  • 300 g soft salted butter
  • 150 g icing sugar

Instructions
 

  • Pre heat the oven to 200 C, Gas 6.
  • Beat the soft butter and caster sugar together until thick and creamy.
  • Add the eggs slowly until incorporated, finally add the vanilla powder, flour, cocoa and chopped chocolate. Do not over work the mixture.
  • Line a patty tin with 12 foil baking cases, then pipe in the chocolate mixture, making sure you leave a small indentation in the middle so the buns rise evenly.
  • Take care to only fill up the cases no more than 1/4 to a 1/3rd full, this is to make sure that you end up with enough space on top of the cooked bun to take the icing.
  • Bake in the pre heated oven until well risen, and firm to the touch. This will take about 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, and cool on a wire rack.
  • Melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering water and dip the top of each cone in chocolate then place on baking parchment and chill well.
  • Carefully beat the butter and sieved icing sugar together, then using a large fluted nozzle pipe a large rosette of butter cream right to the edge of the cupcake.
  • Top with the chilled cones.
  • Put a strip of green ready to roll icing for a belt around the chocolate base then add a small square of yellow ready to roll icing to create a buckle.
