happy halloween!

Today's the 30th October, meaning that, in case you weren't aware, it's Hallowe'en! With all the candy, dressing up and constant Americanisms, you can't help but get caught up in the festivity.

So, to celebrate this celebration, I have a themed cupcake recipe to share with y'all. Enjoy!


Yes, cupcakes! A fandom no one's ever managed to leave, the bane of many people's diets and fares, daughter of Victoria Sponge, son of Birthday Cake... right here for you!


First of all, you'll need to preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius/ 375 degrees Fahrenheit/ Gas Mark 5 (oh the research I had to do for those conversions!) and let the heat simmer whilst you bake.
Then, crack your eggs into a mixing bowl, trying with all your might to avoid dropping shell in the mix, and beat them so that the yolk runs into the white. Measure out your butter and sugar and mix them all together.
Measure your flour, sift it into the bowl and mix again - I like to use a handmixer so that my hand doesn't fall off into the bowl with the ingredients. Add vanilla essence and, oddly enough, mix again.
Your cake mixture should now look creamy and smooth, a pale yellow shade, and that's when you know it's okay to lick the spoon. Good? Yes, let's continue.
Now you'll just want to spread the batter evenly into twelve cupcake cases and put in the oven for approximately fifteen minutes - or a little less if your oven isn't as pathetic as mine - and tradaa, your cupcakes are ready to decorate!



Yes, the designs are über low-quality but eh, it wasn't long until they were all demolished. I created the icing for the majority of my cakes by mixing some milk with icing sugar, and for the 'cat' cupcakes I mixed some raw coco powder with milk - the bitter taste of the coco completely contradicted that of the sweet bake beneath and made it taste awesomeee! Totally not an accident.

Happy Hallowe'en, ya'll!
