It’s Halloween Eve so me and my mum decided to bake some spooky treats to celebrate (no thanks to my dog, Willow, who tried to sabotage the whole operation on a few occasions).
We went big on the chocolate when making these cakes. We made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate topping, using a white chocolate pen to make a few different decorations-we’ve got skeletons, webs, bats and ghosts.
I am not an expert cake decorator- this was just a bit of fun! But I’m pretty happy with how these cupcakes turned out. I was going for a cute, homemade look ;).
I wasn’t sure about my skeletons when I was drawing them but on the cakes I think they look pretty cute!
For the bats we used chocolate buttons for ears. We did bats last year and I just think they look super sweet with their little ears and fangs (obvs they are vampire bats)
The ghosts were a late addition to the range because I only thought to make them near the end. They took up quite a bit of the contents of what I had left in my chocolate pen though so that was probably for the best!
I’m going to bring them into work tomorrow as a surprise. My colleagues are fiends when it comes to treats and snacks so hopefully they will enjoy these spooky cupcakes.
Have you made Halloween themed cakes before?
