Chocolate cupcakes are a very popular item at any birthday party, bridal shower, baby shower and tea parties! You can place the beautifully decorated chocolate cupcakes on a vintage cake stand and make the table with the flowers even more beautiful. Again a wonderful baking item to have a lot of fun with!
This chocolate cupcake recipe is not difficult to make and I include the delicious chocolate icing - although for me it is more about the cake part than the icing part- a great icing recipe to keep.
Chocolate cupcakes can be decorated with Cadbury's shortbread chocolate balls in the middle and eatable glitter for a simple look. When you visit your nearest bakery shop you will find so many ideas and small eatable decorations to make your chocolate cupcakes stand out!
We make this chocolate cupcake recipe regular for our popular kiddies parties at St Omer Farm's The Garden Room Coffee Shop.
It is also a lovely product to make for school fundraisings. If you don't' like the chocolate icing you can substitute it with my butter icing recipe underneath my vanilla cupcakes recipe and just add the food colouring of your choice to make it look less chocolaty.
I made this chocolate cupcake recipe for Kirsten Fourie 's birthday a few years ago- I think he turned 8 or 9 then - a friend and colleague of me, Laetitia Fourie 's son, when we worked together at Augusta Kleinbosch Guest Farm. Thank you, my friend, for making his birthday memorable
