Preheat the oven to 180ºc and grease 15 bun tins (I used two cupcake tins).
Mix together the margarine, caster sugar, fluor, cocoa powder, marmalade and eggs.
Put a heaped teaspoon of mixture into each bun tin and bake for 20-25 minutes.
To make the buttercream mix the butter/margarine, icing sugar and vanilla extract. Halve the buttercream and add the cocoa powder to one half.
