  1. Mix flour in a bowl with spices, baking powder, nuts and grated chocolate. In another bowl, lightly beat the egg, then add sugar, butter, milk and stir well. Then add the Coca-Cola gradually to the flour mix, stirring continuously. Place cupcake cases into a muffin tin and fill with batter. Bake in a preheated oven (middle shelf) for 20 to 25 minutes at 160 degrees. Leave the cupcakes on the baking tray to rest for 15 minutes, then remove and let cool on a wire rack.

For the Frosting:

  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1/4 cups full-fat cream cheese
  • 2 cups sieved powdered sugar

Whip butter and cream cheese with a hand mixer to produce a smooth cream. Add powdered sugar little by little until a spreadable mass arises. If it is too liquid, add more icing sugar, it is too thick, simply add 1 TBSP milk. Use a piping bag or a cut freezer bag to decorate on the cupcakes and finish with Advent biscuits.
