Halloween Cupcakes 

I just love Halloween -so any excuse to make something halloween related! This year it was cupcakes seeing as I seem to be on a bit of a cupcake buzz lately.

The Cupcake batter:

2 and 3/4 cups of flour

1/2 a cup of cake flour

1 Tablespoon of baking powder

1 Teaspoon of Salt

8 ounces of unsalted butter

2 and 1/4 cups of sugar

3 large eggs and 1 egg white

1 cup of milk

1 and 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla extract (vanilla essence will also do)

Method:

Sieve all dry ingredients together, then add butter and whisk to a pastry like texture, then slowly add in the wet ingredients until there are no lumps and the mixture is thick and creamy.  Then bake in oven at 180˚until they are golden on top, time depends on how much batter is used in each cupcake!

The frosting:

60g of unsalted butter

50g of icing sugar

a dash of orange food colouring

blend together and pipe onto the cupcakes once they’ve cooled.

Decorate with assorted halloween candy and red colouring as blood!
