Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

I did some actual cooking today, not just re-heating. Here's one of the things I made.

Icing has never been my strong point

100g soft marge
100g sugar
1 egg
100g self-raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa
1 orange
Icing sugar (amount will vary)

Makes 15

1) Pre-heat the oven to 180degC
2) Mix the marge and sugar in a bowl until smooth
3) Add the egg
4) Also add the flour and cocoa
5) Then squeeze the juice of half an orange into the bowl. You might need to add some flour to get back to a good consistenct
6) Divide into paper cases and cook for 15-20 mins
7) Squeeze the rest of the orange juice into a new bowl, and add enough icing sugar to make a thick paste (maybe 400g?)
8) When the cakes have cooled, spread the icing on top
