Halloween Cupcakes


Why is it that when you want to bake there are no ingredients in the cupboard?! That is always the case for me so I never get round to baking some sweet goodies, but this time I decided to stop being lazy and got my bottom off the settee and do something fun. And what is not better than mixing baking and Halloween together, these buns are the perfect and cute little treats for anyone who is holding a Halloween party, they are fairly cheap to make. 
(Please ignore the cocoa it somehow sneaked into my pictures)

So the ingredients you need are:

Cupcakes:
175g butter
165g caster sugar 
3 eggs
145g self raising flower

Frosting:
100g butter
200g icing sugar

Equipment:
Large mixing bowl
Wooden spoon
Cupcake cases (Halloween style)
Whisk 
Weighing Scales 

How to Make: 
1. Pre heat your oven at 180 degrees. If you are young get an adult to help you with this.

2. Once you have weighed out your ingredients mix the butter and caster sugar into the bowl until soft and fluffy. 


3. Then whisk your eggs together and add it bit by bit alongside the self raising flour into the bowl. Whisk either with a spoon, whisk or electric whisk until the mixture looks like it does in the image. 


4. Place your fun Halloween bun cases into the bun tin and then spoon an even amount of mixture into the cases and then put them into the pre heated oven. (Once again if needed get an adult to help) 

5. Once they are in the oven leave for around 15-20 minutes before taking them out to check. In the meantime it is time to create the frosting. 

6. You can go out and buy some brightly coloured frosting from supermarkets, or you can make your own and add food colouring. I myself just made the plain frosting for my buns as I wanted to decorate them afterwards. 

7. Wash your mixing bowl out and then add the 100g butter and 200g icing sugar and whisk them together until it is fluffy.


8. After 15 minutes take your cupcakes out of the over and place a skewer on knife into the centre of them to check if they are cooked or not. If they are then the skewer will come out clean, if it has mixture on then place them back in for another five minutes. 

9. Leave your cupcakes to cool down before taking them out of the tins and adding your frosting on the top. 

10. You can either pipe the frosting or just place it ontop of the buns using a knife, I made mine quite messy and then sprinkled on top the decorations. 


I hope that you enjoy creating these buns :) I would love to see your own creations, tweet me a picture to @Adventures_O_W and #halloween cupcakes.
