To decorate:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4 and line a cupcake tray with 12 cupcake cases.

  3. In a jug, whisk together the milk and eggs. Slowly stream this into the butter mixture to form a smooth batter. Spoon into the lined cupcake tray.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, then allow to cool completely.
  5. In a bowl, beat together the icing sugar, cocoa powder, butter and coffee until light and fluffy.
  6. Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a round nozzle. Add a swirl of buttercream to the top of each cupcake.
  7. To decorate, drizzle some melted chocolate over the tops of the cupcakes, then add some coffee beans.
