fudge cupcakes

It is a cold and rainy Monday morning in Cape Town. Things I would like to do instead of going to work:

  • get back into bed and read
  • drink tea and play Settlers of Catan online
  • get back into bed and watch copious amounts of House
  • get out of bed at 12:00pm and make pancakes
Wow I am so lazy! But go to work I will. First, however, here are some pictures of the fudge cupcakes I made last week.

I just used these vanilla cupcakes and iced them with caramel fudge icing. And put some fudge on top, YUM.

Caramel Fudge Icing 


  • 60g butter
  • 6 tbs milk
  • 220g brown sugar
  • 240g icing sugar


  • Heat the butter, milk and brown sugar in a saucepan and stir to combine.
  • Bring to the boil, and boil for 1 minute.
  • Remove from the heat and add half of the icing sugar.
  • Leave it to cool for a few minute and add the remaining icing sugar.
  • Mix well.
  • You can add some more milk/cream if it is too thick to ice with.
