Chocolate Cupcakes Sprinkles

These cupcakes use the chocolate cupcake recipe and the chocolate icing as a basis for their decoration. I then used chocolate sprinkles to decorate and milk chocolate buttons.
INGREDIENTS
3/4 cup--6oz--175gm butter or margarine
3/4 cup--6oz--175gm castor sugar
1 cup--4oz--115gm self-raising flour
1/2 cup--2oz--60gm cocoa
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 eggs
1 tablespoon of warm water

METHOD
Cream butter or margarine with the castor sugar in a large bowl. Add the vanilla extract. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Sift in the flour and the cocoa. Fold in. Add the water. Place the mixture in individual cupcake cases in a baking tray. Cook at gas 5--190C--375F for 12 t0 15 minutes.
CHOCOLATE ICING
3/4 cup--4oz--110gm dark cooking chocolate, the type you like
1/2 cup--4oz--110gm butter
2 1/2 cups--10oz--290gm icing sugar
warm water or strong black coffee(choose which you like)

METHOD
Put a pan on the stove with a small amount of boiling water. Place a bowl over the top. Put the chocolate in here to melt. In another bowl cream the butter. Add the melted chocolate to the butter, mix. Gradually add the icing sugar and mix well, add the water or coffee in teaspoons to keep the mixture runny and creamy enough to use as icing. I like it quite firm. when the cupcakes have cooled ice each one. I keep a mug of hot water at the side to moisten my spreading knife.
