1. Place paper cases into cup cake oven trays. Put all the cake ingredients into a medium size bowl and beat together for 2 minutes using an electric whisk. Divide the mixture between the paper cases. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180ºc / 160ºc Fan / Gas mark 4, until the cakes have risen and are just firm to the touch.
2. Place cooked cakes on a cooling tray whilst preparing the icing. Place the butter into a medium size mixing bowl with the dissolved coffee and cocoa powder. Gradually beat in the icing sugar to make a smooth icing.
3. For best results place icing into a piping bag with a small star nozzle fitted. Using a sharp knife cut out mini cones of sponge from each cake. Pipe icing into the centre into a spiral and place sponge cone back on top.
Alternatively place icing into each cake cavity using a teaspoon.
4. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
