Preparation

Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

In a large bowl, sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Set aside.

In a mixer bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, add the eggs and then the vanilla, while mixing continuously.

Gradually incorporate the buttermilk and dry ingredients to the mixture.

Divide the batter into a muffin pan with 24 muffin cups, either buttered and floured, or lined with paper liners.

Bake in the centre of the oven about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.

Frosting

In a mixer bowl, mix all the butter with half the icing sugar, cocoa and milk. When the mixture is smooth, gradually add the remaining ingredients and the vanilla. Mix for about 5 minutes to obtain a smooth creamy texture. Set aside at room temperature.

Assembly

Spread some frosting on each cooled cupcake, insert the liquorice pieces on each side to make legs, and place two red candies on top for the eyes.
