I made these for Darragh to take over to his cousin Charlies house because tonight was their sleepover :)
For the pumpkins I used a candy mold ,I added orange Wilton candy colour ..
Then I used the black & green Wilton colour from this set to paint on the faces & leaves :)
I used a basic recipe for the cupcakes which made exactly 36......lol
12oz Plain Flour
12oz Caster sugar
12oz Real butter
1 &1/2 Tsps of madagascar vanilla
6 Free range eggs
2 Tblsp organic Green & Blacks Cocoa powder
3 Tsp of baking powder
Beat butter until pale in colour
Add sugar & beat for 5 mins
Add eggs one by one & then add vanilla beat slowly
Combine flour,cocoa & baking powder together & sift into bowl,mix very slowly for
2 minutes only.
Scoop into your cases & bake at 155 in a fan oven for 15 mins..
Add a little chocolate butter icing so you can place the pumpkin on the cakes firmly...
Voilla Pumpkin cupcakes for all the family to enjoy :):)
