Halloween Cupcakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 180⁰C.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar until soft.
  3. Once the butter mixture is smooth, beat in the eggs one at a time.
  4. Gradually stir in the rest of the ingredients until well mixed.
  5. Use a tablespoon to divide the bun mix between 12 bun cases.
  6. Place the buns in the oven for 15 minutes.

To make the icing:

  1. Beat the icing sugar and butter together in a bowl until the mixture is well combined. It is easiest to use an electric beater for this.
  2. Then add the cream cheese and beat until well mixed. Eventually the mixture will become light.
  3. When the buns have cooled, use a piping bag or simply a knife and spoon to cover the top of the buns with the icing.
  4. Use an assortment of jellies and sweets to create Halloween toppings. Tip: red and black liquorice is great for making spooky figures.
