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:
You can also find the recipe here 🍰
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 out🙈
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 👻
I got very excited when Zoella herself liked my picture of my cupcakes 🤗
Screenshot it of course haha 🙈
