Chocolate caramel cupcakes revisited

Remember these? Well, I got to make them again this last Saturday. Except, the difference between now and then is that I am no longer able to eat anything dairy – so this was pure torture! Imagine not being able to lick the bowl after mixing up a delicious cake! Absolute torture!

These were for a friends birthday, who requested the very smart addition of Mars Bar to the top of the cupcakes. I think it works!

Also, piping skills are on the improve!

It was almost a shame to put mars bar on top! (Almost!)

And here they are all lined up.

The recipe was the same as last time, except I made chocolate buttercream icing by melting 100 grams dark chocolate with a tablespoon of butter and cocoa then pouring icing sugar on the lot. I have no idea about how much icing sugar I used, I just kept pouring until I got the consistency I wanted.

From what I can tell, these were even richer than the last lot and that was something nobody was complaining about at all!
