Today I made the Hummingbird Bakery chocolate cupcakes and then added some Cadbury’s mini eggs to give them an Easter twist! I haven’t tried one yet as I’m saving them to give to my family tomorrow but they certainly look the part! I used Marks and Spencer muffin cases for the first time but they seemed to totally fall apart from the sponge. I will have to try using them again to see if they needed more sponge mixture in each casing. The Hummingbird Bakery recipe says it makes 12 but I struggled to make 10, 9 is probably more realistic. Also, it says to use 300g of icing sugar but I found halving this quantity yielded more than enough icing. So more experimentation to be had with different cases and quantities!
