Step 1

Preheat oven to 160°C fan forced. Place 2x Silicone Mini Muffin Pan 12 Cup on baking trays.

Step 2

Sift flour, almond meal, cocoa, baking powder and bicarb into a bowl. Add buttermilk, sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, vinegar and food colouring and whisk to combine.

Step 3

Divide between patty cases and bake on trays for 15 mins or until cooked through when tested with a skewer. Stand to cool for 5 minutes then invert onto a wire rack to cool.

Step 4

Meanwhile, for the frosting place all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whisk on high for 3-5 minutes or until smooth and combined. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with selected nozzle and chill for 10 minutes to firm up slightly.


For a brighter option, add food colour of your choice to mixture before whisking.

Pipe frosting onto cupcakes, making sure to clean the nozzle as you go for a clean finish on the icing. Scatter with decorations and serve.
