These chocolate cupcakes are quick and easy to make and ideal if kids want to get involved too. Making them into mini towers adds a point of difference compared to the usual ones you get with frosting on top.

Divide the mixture among the 16 cupcake cases and place in the oven for 15 minutes. They will be ready when you stick a skewer in and it comes out clean.
Leave to cool on a wire wrack.
For the icing, beat the ingredients together and add a little milk until you have a smooth consistency.
Using a sharp knife, cut out the top of the cake at a slight angle.
