Chocolate cup cake with fondant

The Academy of Drama where my daughter attends to organized a cup cake sale to rise some founds. I have decided to donate some cupcakes and I baked chocolate cupcakes, decorated them with fondant. And recipe? It belongs to me since I remember, usually I use it to bake big chocolate cake. This time I baked 24 cupcakes out of it.

Ingredients for 24 cup cakes:
  • 250g margarine for baking
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 4 tbsp baking cocoa
  • 1 1/2 mug* of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 mug* of flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 16 g vanilla sugar
 *take regular coffee mug

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line a muffin tin with paper cases.
In a sauce pan put the margarine, milk, sugar, cocoa powder and bring it to boil stirring all the time. When it is boiled let the mixture to cool down. After some time, when the mixture is room temperature, add the flour, baking powder, vanilla sugar and egg yolks. Give it a good stir. In separate bowl whisk egg whites until stiff (add pinch of salt). Gently fold the egg white foam into the batter. Spoon the batter in paper cases 3/4 full. Bake for 15-20 min. Check with toothpick if baked in the middle. 

When cup cakes are cooled down decorate them with fondant for ideas use your imagination. Fondant and ready to roll icing are available in all colours check shops with baking equipment and groceries.
Here you are a few ideas.
