Mint Aero Cupcakes

OOh these were scrummy !!! 

I used a good old fashion cake baking ingredient trick for these, I weighed 2 eggs and added the same amount of butter, self raising flour and caster sugar. I then added a heaped tablespoon of cocoa powder. 

Bake the mixture for about 15 - 20 minutes, or until they are firm to the touch, but not burnt, keep an eye on them !! 

Then for the frosting I made mint green buttercream !! 

Mix 140g butter & 280g sifted icing sugar together with a little bit of food colouring and 1 tsp of peppermint essence.  Always try this for flavour and add a bit more if you wish !! 

Then, using a large circular nozzle, pipe the icing on to the cupcakes ! 

I finished mine off with sprinklings of mint aero or as you can see, a couple of squares as it comes ! (I think this might've worked better with the old shape bars though, these look a little like boobs sorry ! ) ha ha ! 

Anyway, these are really yummy and I hope you enjoy xx
