Cheat's cupcakes and chocolate curls
- 400g plastic icing
- 10ml vanilla extract
- 12 vanilla cupcakes
- 50g 70% dark chocolate, melted
Put the icing into a bowl and mash well with a wooden spoon to soften. Add the vanilla and beat well with the wooden spoon to combine.
Spread the icing on each cupcake as evenly as you can. You can be a bit messy as they look better when they’re a little rough around the edges.
Curl the chocolate with a sharp knife and sprinkle on the top.
We bought a vanilla sponge cake mix, followed the box instructions and baked them in cupcake flutes in a muffin pan for 15 minutes until brown and well-risen.
