Chocolate Cupcakes with Butter Cream Frosting

This recipe is one my mum made religiously my entire childhood, I would not have the slightest clue where the original recipe came from, it is at least as old as I am. Mum use to ice these cupcakes in good old chocolate icing and use lollies to make smiley faces =D This is a little bit different but Mum certainly approved the new version of her classic chocolate cake recipe. I decided to try Cupcake Addictions butter cream frosting and my gosh is it amazing!!!! You have to try it, I rate it a 20/10. It is that good.
