Spider Web Cup Cakes

4oz Margarine or Butter
4oz Caster Sugar
3.5 oz Self Raising Flour
0.5oz Cocoa Powder
2 Eggs
Black food colouring
60g Unsalted Butter
75g Icing Sugar
25g Cocoa Powder
Black Food colouring
For the Web
Some icing sugar and water.
Pre heat the oven to 180oC. Cream the margerine and sugar together until light and fluffy. Whisk the eggs in one at a time then sift in the cocoa and flour. Stir it all together and then add some black food colouring to give a rich dark colour. Bake for 15-18 mins (depending on oven) until springy to touch.
Once cooked allow to cool thoroughly.
Mix the butter, icing sugar, cocoa and black food colouring together then smooth the icing over the cakes. Now mix a little water and icing sugar together and place a dot of this in the centre of your cake using a cocktail stick then make two rings around the centre one. From the centre using the cocktail stick drag lines outwards so that you get webs. Enjoy!
