1) Preheat the oven to 170c and line a cupcake tray with cupcake cases
2) Cream together the margarine and caster sugar in a mixing bowl until creamy
3) Add the eggs, mix then add the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder until all are combined
4) Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases, I use a ice cream scoop to divide evenly
5) Bake in the oven for 12-15 mins or until they have risen and a skewer comes out clean, leave to cool in the tin for 5 mins before transferring to a wire cooling rack
6) To make the buttercream mix the icing sugar and butter and poppy seeds together in a clean bowl with a tsp of milk, use a wet tea towel to cover the bowl to avoid a cloud
7) Add the buttercream to a piping bag with the nozzle already inserted and pipe as desired, cover with sprinkles and descciated coconut to decorate
