- 2 cups icing sugar
- ¼ cup milk of choice
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius fan-forced, and line a standard muffin tray with 6 muffin liners.
- In a large mixing bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.
- Allow it to cool slightly before adding the caster sugar, brown sugar, egg, vanilla essence and milk and whisking to combine.
- Add the baking powder and salt and stir.
- Gradually sift in the cacao powder and flours, whisking between each to ensure all lumps are gone.
- Distribute the cake mix evenly between the 6 muffin liners.
- Bake the cupcakes in the oven for approximately 25 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean, and the cupcakes spring back when you touch them lightly.
- Set the cupcakes aside on a wire rack to cool completely. Remove the butter for the icing from the fridge to soften.
- Once they are cool, use a small circular piping bag attachment (or a small spoon) to remove about 1 tsp of cake from the centre of each cupcake.
- Fill each hole with 1 tsp of Confetti Cake Pop Almond Butter.
- To make the icing, whip together the softened butter, Confetti Cake Pop Almond Butter, icing sugar and milk in a large bowl using an electric whisk.
- Spread or pipe the icing on the cupcakes, and enjoy.
