Step 1

Preheat the oven to about 170 centigrade.
Sift together the flour and cocoa powder.
Add in the sugar, margarine and egg and beat well to form a thick, smooth batter.

Step 2

plit the mixture evenly into cupcake cases and bake in the oven for about 12-18 minutes.
Allow the cakes to cool fully on a cooling rack before even thinking about starting to ice them!

Step 3

To make the icing, beat the butter until it is soft and fluffy and then slowly add in the icing sugar.
Add in the vanilla essence, milk and about 4 or 5 drops of food colouring, enough to give the icing the colour of easter chicks!
Pipe (or splodge) the icing onto the cakes and then decorate with wafer flowers, silver balls and mini marshmallows before giving them a spray with edible shimmer spray and leaving the icing to set.
