Chocolate Cupcake

 I really love when it christmas is here.All the festivities,the cakes,and everything looks superb.The favourite part is all the baking and icing I get to do.Icing is the coolest part of making cakes.No cake is perfect without the perfect icing.I like cream icing the best because it tastes good.But it seems that the icing is usually sliding down.What icings do you use?

Cake Flour(Maida)- 100gm
Butter                    - 100gm
Eggs                      -  2
Sugar                     - 100gm(powdered)
Cocoa Powder      -  40gm
Baking powder      -  1 tsp 

For icing
Fresh Cream    - 2 cups
Icing Sugar       - 1 cup  or as required
Chocolate Strands

Beat the butter and sugar until the sugar dissolves completely.Separate the eggs and add the yolk to the butter.Slowly beat up the eggs until the mixture is smooth.Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.Now add the flour to the batter and mix well.In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until the egg white becomes firm.Now add the egg white to the the cake batter and fold.Be careful to only fold and not beat the mixture.Prepare the cups by buttering and putting some flour on them.Pour the batter into the cups and bake in a preheated oven.The temperature and time varies according the oven.Let the cakes cool.

For icing
Beat together the fresh cream and sugar.beat it for a long time until the mixture becomes thick.Now see if it is sweet enough.If not add more sugar until the mixture is sweet.
