I love Halloween baking and really went all out last year. I was planning a few different things this year but time ran away from me so here's my last minute attempt. Red Velvet Eyeball Cupcakes and Chocolate Pumpkin Patch with Wriggly Worms. It's late and I'm too tired to think of cool names!
The cupcakes were fairly easy to make and you don't need a lot of specialist equipment. I made a batch of red velvet cupcakes (12) and a batch of chocolate cupcakes (18). The frosting was enough to frost all 30 cupcakes! (Click on the links for the recipe). The frosting was from the red velvet cupcake recipe - I frosted the red velvet cupcakes first and then added 50g melted chocolate to the remaining frosting for the chocolate cupcakes.
As these are for Halloween, I'm entering them to Calendar Cakes hosted by Rachel from Dolly Bakes and co-hosted by Laura from Laura Loves Cakes.
I also decided to make some little pumpkins from ready rolled orange icing and a green tic tac. I used a toothpick to make the indentations on the side.
Happy Halloween Everyone!
