  • For the cupcakes, heat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius and place paper cases in a 12 hole bun tin.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat the eggs and then sift in the flour and cocoa and gently fold into the mixture.
  • Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake for 15 minutes until well-risen and firm to the touch. Remove from the tin and place on a wire rack to cool.
  • To decorate, roll out the sugarpaste thinly on a surface dusted with caster sugar and cut it into 6 long, thin strips. Cut each strip in half.
  • Whisk the cream until thick and spread on top of the cooled cupcakes. Place 2 red candles as eyes, a liquorice candy as a nose, a sugar paste strip as hair and grated chocolate as a mouth.
