Yummy cupcakes are a favorite of kids and adults alike.
It's like having your own little individual cake.
Line 18 standard muffin cups with paper liners (or use silicone liners like the ones below). Sift the flour and sugar into a mixing bowl. Add the butter, eggs, milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Fill the paper liners 3/4 full with the batter.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the cupcakes are golden. Cool on a wire rack.
To make the frosting, mix the confectioners; sugar, cocoa and butter with a little hot water until smooth. Spread over the cupcakes. Top each cake with a chocolate disk.
Makes 18 cupcakes.

Did You Know?...
When dressed up with icing and decorations, cupcakes are a treat for the eyes too.
Today many people opt for cupcake cakes for birthdays, bridal or baby shower cakes or even a wedding cupcake cake.
The last bridal shower I attended had pretty glass storage jars with decorated cupcakes as the center pieces, which were later given to guests. What a great idea!
Let your mind go with unique and wonderful ideas for decorating and using these cuppy cakes (as the kids call them).
Make cupcakes out of this moist chocolate cake recipe too.
