Creepy cupcakes for Halloween πŸ•ΈπŸ‘»

Inspired by Zoellas vlog and bake off I had a go at some creepy cupcakes ready for my sister Halloween film day/night. To see what we got up to for this take a look at my sisters blog post here.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4tbspWater boiling
  • 40gCocoa powder
  • 3Egg(s) (free range)
  • 175gButter (unsalted)softened
  • 165gUnrefined golden caster sugar 
  • 115gSelf-raising white flour
  • 1tspBaking powder rounded 

    You can also find the recipe here πŸ°

    I love Mary’s recipes as she goes for the ‘mix it all in together’ approach, which makes life a lot easier for even the most serious of bakers! 

    I started by weighing out all my ingredients carefully…

    I prepped the chocolate writing fluid next by placing it in a jug of boiling water.

    This helps the chocolate inside to melt ready for your piping. I would recommended buying two tubes of this if you haven’t done much piping as I used loads just practicing and then I ran outπŸ™ˆ

    Once everything was ready I used my food processor (lazy I know!) to combine all the ingredients.

    The mixture looks silky and smooth when it’s combined, good enough to eat like that!!

    I like to use an ice cream scoop to put an even amount of mixture in each cupcake case. I couldn’t find any funky Halloween cases so I opted for spooky silver ones.

    Whilst they were cooking I attempted piping…

    Once my baking prong came out clean from the cupcakes I popped them on the cooling rack, the house smelt divine.

    I cheated with ready prepared chocolate buttercream as I was pushed for time but the recipe I have linked includes what you’ll need to make chocolate buttercream too.

    Here they are…

    The piping isn’t great but I tried my best! Some didn’t go to plan so I improvised with shop bought ghost marshmallows to top half of them πŸ‘»

    I got very excited when Zoella herself liked my picture of my cupcakes πŸ€—

    Screenshot it of course haha πŸ™ˆ
