Chocolate cupcakes with pink icing

Today I was meant to be studying all day for my two SACs this coming week so I decided to make cupcakes with my neighbours instead. 

The recipe is as follows and I highly recommend that you make these! 

3 eggs
3/4 cup milk 
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla 
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder 
2 tablespoons of cocoa 
170gms of butter
2 cups flour 
pinch of salt 
heaps of choc-chips! 

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and then add eggs gradually, one at a time

Blend the cocoa, milk and vanilla 

Then add to the butter mixture

Add the chocolate chips to the flour, baking powder and salt 

Then fold in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients...

...until it looks like this: 

Then evenly place into already greased muffin cases and bake in a moderately hot oven for 15 minutes

Whilst they are cooking cream some butter, icing sugar and the tiniest amount of coco together with pink food colouring for the icing  

Once cool ice and top with sprinkles and...
You're ready to eat!
