[shark frenzy]

To celebrate Dan's big-number birthday and his fondness of sharks, we held a party at a bowls club and invited our closest friends to come drink, be merry and dress like sharks.
Convenient and maybe a little sad, I didn't need to buy any new shark paraphernalia for decorations.
And I made, what I'm pretty sure are the best most delicious cupcakes of my baking history.
A special thanks goes out to!
Here tis!
Chocolate Cupcakes
  • 100g dark chocolate

  • 1 cup (250ml) water

  • 125g butter, softened

  • 1 1/4 cups (255g) brown sugar

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups (225g) self-raising flour

  • 1/2 cup (75) plain flour

  • 1/4 cup (30g) cocoa powder

  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
    Line 18 x 1/3-cup (80ml) capacity muffin pans with paper cases.
    Melt the chocolate and water in a saucepan over low heat - stir 5mins or until smooth. Cool.
    Beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy.
    Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each until just combined.
    Add the flours and cocoa powder and stir until just combined.
    Add the melted chocolate mixture and stir to combine.
    Spoon evenly among the lined muffin pans.
    Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
    Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    Ice with butter icing with blue colouring and top with gummy sharks.
    Serve to your shark victim, loan shark, grey-nurse and MC hammer-head friends.

    Happy hump day!!! Jx
