Halloween Cupcakes

So, yesterday I shared the Halloween Sugarpaste Models that I made with my blogging buddy Sam from Memories & Mayhem and today I’ve used those models to make some Halloween Cupcakes!

This weekend has been a busy one, and so, I’m going to share my tried and tested cupcake recipe that I always use. I cheated and bought frosting, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! After baking and icing the cakes, I added some sprinkles and then each sugarpaste/fondant model on top.

Halloween Cupcakes

Yield: 24
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 335g unsalted butter, softened
  • 335g caster sugar
  • 335g self-raising flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 6 eggs
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C/Gas 4, and line a tin with cupcake cases.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat together all the ingredients with an electric mixer until pale, smooth and fluffy - about 2 minutes.
  3. Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases - I use an ice-cream scoop to get an even divide.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. A skewer should come out clean to indicate that they are done.
  5. To turn these vanilla cupcakes into chocolate, add 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the mix.
