How To Make Creepy Halloween Cupcakes:


2 eggs

125g softened butter or baking margarine

125g self raising flour (or plain flour with 1 tsp of baking powder added)

125g white or golden sugar

1 heaped tbs cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

pinch salt

1 – 2 tbs milk


1.) Add the eggs, butter, flour, sugar, cocoa & salt to a bowl and beat with a hand whisk until blended.

2.) Add the milk and briefly mix again.

3.)Β The batter should be loose enough to dollop off a spoon.

4.) Line a bun tin with fairy cake cases.

5.) Fill each case 2/3 with batter and bake at 190C / GM 5 for about 12 minutes until risen and when a cocktail stick inserted into the cake comes out clean.


75g butter

220g icing sugar

30g cocoa powder

1tsp vanilla extract

1 – 2 tbs milk


1.) The secret to fluffy butter cream is to beat the butter really well before you add any sugar.

2.) Beat the butter until it is soft and fluffy, and then slowly add the icing sugar, cocoa, vanilla and milk.

3.) You can make butter cream in advance and store in the fridge until needed.

(Remove from the fridge well before you need it)

4.) I store mine in the piping bag, with a clip just behind the nozzle and the end of the bag twisted so it is airtight.

5.) Decorate your cakes with the Halloween flavours of Jelly Belly of choice.

The oranges, blacks, purples and blood curdling red are the obvious ones but Halloween is about doing things YOUR way!
