  • 170g margarine
  • 170g Caster sugar
  • 3 Medium eggs

Topping:
  • Ready made chocolate icing ( I used a tub of Betty Crocker's chocolate fudge icing as it is so yummy!!).

  • Little bit of icing sugar


Method:
  1. Pre heat your oven to 180c or 160c fan oven. Gas mark 4. Add your paper cupcake cases to the muffin trays.
