I’m back with another baking post, this time perfect for Halloween or if you or your kids are having a party! This is a Mary Berry sponge recipe ( as I love her recipes, I find they work best – personally.) But I put a Halloween spin on them! Now I did do a lazy version – confession time I didn’t make the buttercream – I know, I know! But I saw some in Asda and that’s what inspired this post!
What you’ll need –
175g self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Coloured buttercream – or make your own 😉
Halloween sweets as toppers – I used Asda halloween eyeball and brain sweets
Cute Halloween cupcake cases
Start by creaming together the butter and sugar
Add in the eggs and stir together
Mix in baking powder, vanilla extract and gradually stir in the flour.
Bake for 12-15 minutes at 190 degrees.
Once cool, begin the piping – I folded my piping bag over a pint glass so I could get the buttercream in easily. I lined the outside of the bag with one colour and then filled the bag with the second so both colours would spiral.
I am a huge novice when it comes to piping, but I was pretty happy with how they turned out, I started in the middle worked outwards then came back in a finished with a point on the top.
Then time to decorate with my Halloween sweets – what I didn’t realise is the buttercream I bought were both flavoured – orange and lime. So I probably wouldn’t have mixed them had I known, but I think they look pretty cool!
Super easy to make, and I think both kids and adults will like them!
I hope you enjoyed this little Halloween treats post – there will be another one coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled, and happy baking!
