Once combined, add the remaining flour, cocoa

scoop, divide the batter between the cupcake cases
and place in the oven for 20 minutes, or until

Once completely cooled, remove from the tins.

To ice, put the cream cheese, butter, chocolate
extract and golden icing sugar in a mixing bowl

Warm through the cream and then in a bowl, slowly pour over the chocolate and stir until it has
completely melted.

Let it cool to allow it to set a little before mixing into the cream cheese frosting.

Place in a piping bag and ice accordingly.
