Mother’s Day Chocolate Mice Cupcakes!

Boo made cupcakes last week, and they were so adorable he’s promised to make them for me on Mothering Sunday. This isn’t my usual recipe post as Boo did this one, but as he’s not great at typing, I’m doing that bit and sharing his lovely cake idea on his behalf!

It’s a really simple recipe, and I have to confess the cake was fabulous and spongy! The recipe (as written by Boo) is here:

Mix the ingredients, and pre-heat your oven (ours is a fan oven and we had it heated to 180c). The mix makes 12 cup cakes, and they cooked in 17 minutes in our oven.

When the cakes are cool, melt some chocolate (we used cadbury giant buttons) and then spread a bit on the top of each cake. Break a giant button in half, to make two mice ears, and you could use a piece of strawberry lace for the tale but Boo used a slither of chocolate button (and ate the rest..). Boo used silver sugar balls for the eyes and nose, but you could use smarties to keep up the chocolate theme!

So that’s what I’m hoping for on Mother’s Day, what are you hoping to receive for Mother’s Day?
