Sift the flour into a bowl, then add half to the cake mixture along with half the buttermilk. Mix until smooth and then add the remaining flour and buttermilk and mix again.
In a bowl mix together the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar then add to the cake mix stirring it in by hand until it is all incorporated.
Spoon the mixture into the Muffin Cases and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Allow them to cool for 15 minutes then remove from the tins and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Once cooled, crumble one cupcake to use to decorate the cupcakes. Place the buttercream in a piping bag and cut the end of the piping bag to create a 1cm hole. Pipe a swirl of buttercream onto each cupcake and sprinkle with the reserved sponge. You cupcakes are now ready to enjoy!
