Ingredients Cupcakes:
  • 1 tub Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Icing 
  • 60 ml water (4 tbsp) 
  • 30 ml vegetable oil (2 tbsp) 
  • 2 medium free range eggs 
  • 1 box Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cupcake Mix 
  • 9 Large Milk Chocolate Buttons, cut in half 
  • White Fondant Icing, cut into 1½cm rounds 
  • Black Fondant Icing made into ½cm dots 
  • 9 Yellow or Orange Chocolate Beans
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens) / Gas Mark 4. 
  2. Place the cake cases into your muffin tin. 
  3. Mix the cupcake mix, oil, water and eggs gently together and then whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until completely blended. 
  4. Spoon the mixture evenly into the cupcake cases. 
  5. Bake in the centre of the oven for 16 minutes or until a rounded knife inserted into the centre of a cupcake comes out clean. Leave to cool on a wire rack. 
  6. Ice the Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge icing over the top of the cupcakes when cool. Place the chocolate button halves on top of the cupcakes to make the ears. 
  7. Pipe over the chocolate fudge icing to make the feathers and tufts.
  8. Create by rolling out the white icing and cutting large circles for the eyes to place on the cupcake. 
  9. Add the chocolate beans for the beaks under the eyes. Wonderful!
