Fun and Easy Halloween Cupcakes

Halloween is such a fun time and not just for the kids but for us grown ups too! My son just loves to get dressed up for Halloween and he usually plans his scary costume many months in advance. With Halloween on our doorstep here is some Fun and Easy Halloween Cupcakes you can make. They are a great treat for your trick or treaters or a nice addition at your Halloween party and the best part is that they are so easy to make.

 


 

Simple Halloween Cupcakes

1/2 cup white Sugar
1/3 cup soft Unsalted Butter
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 cups Self Raising Flour
1/2 cup Milk

Cream the Butter and Sugar together till light and fluffy. Beat in the Eggs and stir in the Vanilla.
Add the Flour to the mixture and mix well. Stir in Milk and beat till smooth.

Spoon half of the cupcake mixture into another bowl - add pink or blue (blue in my case) food colouring to half the mixture. Spoon blue mixture into cupcake liners and then top with vanilla mixture.

Bake for 15-20 mins at 180 degrees Celsius, until a test pin comes out clean.

Makes 12 cupcakes



 
 


To Decorate

You Need:

You need a small amount of white and black fondant or sugarpaste.
Edible ink pens.
Piping bags with white, orange and red frosting.
Halloween cake confetti

Decorate:

Make small spiders out of the black fondant.
Make some eye balls from the white and black.
Frost cupcakes in different colours. Decorate as scary or fun as you can. Make some mummy cupcakes, some scary bloody eyeballs and add some fondant spiders.


Happy Halloween!
