Step 1

Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius. Line a six cup muffin pan with liners and set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and cocoa powder. Mix well so that they are uniform.

In another bowl, add yogurt and powdered sugar and beat till the sugar dissolves. Add oil and whisk well.

Now pipe the whipped cream on the cooled cupcakes. Decorate with gems. Enjoy!
