Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 18 muffin tins with paper cupcake liners. In bowl, using electric mixer, gradually beat sugar into butter. Beat in eggs one at a time.

Step 2

Alternately beat in by thirds the flour and milk (beat in baking powder also), finishing with a flour portion (tip for measuring flour: stir flour, spoon into measuring cup, then level). Spoon batter into cupcake liner to half full, add level teaspoon jam, add more batter to 3/4s full. Repeat for 18 cupcakes.

Step 3

Bake on middle rack of oven 35 minutes, or until lightly golden and centre springs back when gently pressed. Cool completely before decorating.

Step 4

Melt chocolate in bowl set over pot of simmering water. Remove bowl from heat. Stir in sour cream and vanilla.

Step 5

Gradually mix in icing sugar until smooth, adjust thickness by adding spoons of icing sugar if too thin or drops milk if too thick.

Step 6

Frost cupcakes with icing then place candy fang on each cupcake. Squeeze red cake decorating gel where fangs touch cupcake.
