Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

I am obsessed with all things peanut butter (seriously I have a peanut butter sandwich for lunch everyday at work and I don't think that's healthy) and I am particularly obsessed with Reese's.  So it only makes sense to combine my love of peanut butter with my love of cakes, since I seem to have a constant supply of peanut butter cups in my flat. I decided to make chocolate cakes as I thought they would taste best with the peanut butter, but used vanilla icing so that cakes weren't too chocolatey!

I started by making the cake mix and then once I'd spooned it into the cases I added a small peanut butter cup to each cake. This way the cakes have a peanut butter cup baked into the middle which is pretty awesome. The once fully baked and cooled I added the icing and decorations. For the decorations I first drizzled each cake with caramel sauce, then added a peanut butter cup on top and Reese's Pieces around the edge. I also added the little gold straws as I thought they were cute and matched the gold cake cases!   

For The Cakes
♥ 110g caster sugar
♥ 110g soft butter
♥ 100g self raising flour
♥ 10g cocoa powder
♥ 2 medium eggs
Small Peanut butter cups

For The Icing
♥ 150g soft butter
♥ 350g icing sugar
♥ Vanilla extract
Caramel sauce
Peanut butter cups
Reese's Pieces

♥ Mix butter and sugar together until smooth
♥ Beat eggs in a separate bowl and then mix this in with the butter and sugar mix
♥ Gradually add in the flour and cocoa powder and combine until smooth
♥ Spoon into cake cases
♥ Add a small peanut butter cup to the centre of each cake and press down so you can just see the top
♥ Bake for 20 minutes at 180C
♥ Mix butter and icing sugar in a bowl
♥ Spoon icing into piping bag
♥ Once the cakes are fully cool ice them and then add decorations
