Preparation steps

1.
For the cupcakes: heat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) 350°F gas 4. Place paper cases in a 12 hole muffin tin.
2.
Beat the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until smooth. Mix in the vanilla extract.
3.
Sift in both flours and stir into the mixture with the milk and chocolate chips, until only just combined.
4.
Spoon into the paper cases and bake for about 20 minutes until golden and springy to the touch. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
5.
To decorate: dust a surface with icing sugar and roll out the red sugarpaste thinly. Cut into 6 rounds the same diameter as the cakes. Repeat with the white sugarpaste.
6.
Brush 1 side of the sugarpaste rounds with a little water and place on top of the cakes, pressing and smoothing to remove any air bubbles.
7.
Decorate with small sweets.
