Butterfly Chocolate Cupcakes

An easy-peasy recipe I found in cupcakes & muffins 100 everyday recipes, by Love Food a little book I found in a bookshop in South Kensington.  

Just make some normal chocolate cupcakes with butter, caster sugar, self-raising flour, 2 eggs and cocoa powder, mixed with some melted chocolate, and divided into 12 cupcake cases.
Then bake for 15 minutes or so.

Then make the filling with butter, icing sugar and melted chocolate.

When the cupcakes have cooled, slice a circle off the top of each, and half it.
Then pipe the icing on top with a big nozzle. It may look a little dodgy...


Who did that?

Then stick the 'wings' back on. You could decorate them with some coloured swirly icing or silver balls, but I didn't think of that until after...

What on earth?
