Chocolate Fudge Nest Cakes

Pipe a nest on top of these fool-proof chocolate fudge cupcakes!



  • Preheat the oven to 190C or 170C for fan assisted ovens and line a cupcake tray with 14 paper cases.

  • In a large mixing bowl, sieve in the flour and cacao powder then tip in the remaining cupcake ingredients and mix until combined.

  • Divide the cake mixture in to the paper cases, place in the oven for 15 minutes or until risen and cooked all the way through. Leave to cool completely before icing.


  • Melt the chocolate and combine with half the butter. Sift in half the icing sugar and mix.

  • In a separate bowl, combine the remaining butter with the sifted icing sugar.

  • Pipe the white icing on to the cupcakes first, followed by the chocolate icing then top with Easter decorations.
