Sunday Baking // Rolo Cupcakes

My first baking post for 2015! Wow, it's been a while. This weekend I had a lot of time to myself - very rare - so I decided to do some baking. I have been dying to use my Tala Piping Set which I got for Christmas so chose something with plenty of butter icing!  I took to Pinterest to research some ideas as I wanted to make something new that I haven't done before. I stumble across Rolo Cupcakes & they looked so delicious I just had to give them a go. I didn't follow any particular recipe, I just kind of improvised & made up my own. Here are my list of ingredients (makes 12 cupcakes):

Self Raising Flour - 100g
Butter - 185g (125g for the Sponge, 60g for the Icing)
Caster Sugar - 125g
Eggs - 2
Cocoa Powder - 25g
Chocolate Chips
Icing Sugar - 60g
Rolos - 2 packets

I mixed everything together as if you were making standard chocolate cupcakes & added in a bag of chocolate chips at the end. I cooked them in the oven on 180 degrees (fan oven) for 20-25 minutes. Once they were completely cool, I cut out a small part of the Middle of the cake & added in a tsp of Caramel. I popped the sponge back on top - this doesn't have to be neat as the butter icing covers it. For the butter icing, I used 60g of Butter, 60g of Icing Sugar & 2tbsp of Cocoa Powder. I used my Tala Piping bag to pipe the icing on top (using head #30) & then added a Rolo to finish it off. 

I am so pleased with the way they have turned out & they look & taste so yummy - what do you think? Have you baked anything new recently?
