that's how I feel today!........ work's been a little demanding the last couple of weeks, due to sickness & holidays and I'm shattered. A much needed cupcake fix was needed, so Honeycomb Cupcakes were made... accompanied by a little of Cadbury's finest..

Icing ~ Icing sugar, Butter & vanilla essence - mix to required taste. Honeycomb square to decorate.
1. Pre-heat oven to 175' and line a 12 hole muffin pan with cupcake cases.
2. Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar, then add vanilla and egg. Beat until well combined. Fold in half the flour and milk until mixture is smooth. Repeat with remaining flour and milk and stir until batter is smooth. Either chop or crush honeycomb and stir into batter. Three quarters fill each paper case with batter.
