Stacey Hart's Chocolate rose cupcakes

A super-easy, moist and delicious chocolate cupcake which takes a few minutes to make and will probably last as long!

Prep:

Cook:

Serves: 12

    The glittery rose icing design makes these so pretty and appeals to adults and kids. I often make a batch to take to a friend, they certainly make people smile and that makes me happy! The mixture makes 12 large cakes plus a small taster one. 

    You will need

    12 hole muffin tray and muffin cases

    Red/pink food colouring (I love electric pink!)

    Wilton 1m icing nozzle and an icing bag

    Gold glitter pump spray

    Method
    • Heat oven to 190°C (170°C fan).
    • Whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla extract in a jug.
    • Beat together the rest of the ingredients in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment until well mixed.
    • Add the egg, milk and vanilla extract mixture and mix until smooth.
    • Spoon into cupcake cases to full and bake for 18-20 mins until a skewer comes out clean when pushed into the centre of one. Take the cupcakes from the tin and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
    • While the cupcakes are baking make your icing
    • In your stand mixer beat the butter with the milk, vanilla extract and ⅓ of the icing sugar until smooth. Slowly add the rest of the icing sugar and food colouring until you're happy with the colour and the icing is smooth and creamy.
    • Put the icing nozzle into the icing bag and then fill it with the buttercream.
    • Once the cupcakes are completely cold, start icing a spiral shape from the middle of the cupcakes, slowly working your way round and round to the edge of each cake to make a beautiful rose.
    • If you want to add a little bit of bling to your cakes, spray with gold glitter spray.
    • Store in an airtight box in the fridge. Take out at least 30 mins before eating to soften the icing.
