Preheat the oven to 200°C, 180°C fan oven, Gas mark 6. Line the muffin tin with paper cases or grease it. Break the chocolate into pieces and melt in a bowl over hot water.
Beat Stork and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time and fold in flour with the cocoa powder and melted chocolate.
Spoon the batter into the prepared cases and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes. Check the cakes are done by inserting a skewer into the middle. If it comes out clean, it is done. Allow cupcakes to cool completely.
Halve the strawberries.
Whip the Elmlea and the vanilla with a mixer until stiff.
Spread or pipe onto the cupcakes. With the help of halved strawberries and melted chocolate, form ladybugs (strawberry as the body put the top of strawberry in the melted chocolate to create the head, draw the dots with the toothpick and melted chocolate) and decorate cupcakes with them. Your Ladybug Cupcakes are ready!
