Method

1 Heat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4. Place the sugar, butter,
flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, eggs and vanilla extract
in a large bowl. Using an electric hand whisk, beat for 5 minutes
until light and fluffy.
2 Sit paper muffin cases in a 12-hole muffin tin and divide the mixture between them. Bake for 15–20 minutes until firm. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.
3 With a small, serrated knife, carefully slice the top off each cake. Using the star nozzle, pipe a large swirl of chocolate flavour icing onto each cake. Cut each top in half and position the wings back in place. Sit a cherry in the centre of each cake then spray lightly with shimmer spray before serving.
