Halloween Fairy Cakes

31 October 2016

Last year I made halloween cupcakes with orange flavoured buttercream - they were terrible! So this year I decided to go a little more simple. I picked up a halloween cupcake kit from Asda; and when I say 'cupcake kit' I mean a box of cake cases and halloween characters on cocktail sticks. Super cute!


3 Eggs
6oz Self Raising Flour
6oz Caster Sugar
6oz Butter
1 Bag of Chocolate Chips
Food Colouring

Icing Sugar
Food Colouring
Halloween Sprinkles


Turn the oven to gas mark 4 to heat up

Cream the butter and sugar together. Once this mixture is nice and creamy add the egg yolks - save the whites for later! Sieve in the flour bit by bit and add in the egg whites. Then, mix in the chocolate chips! Once the mixture is all mixed together split it into two and add purple food colouring to one half and green to the other (or whatever colours you choose). Add to the cake cases; half green and half purple.

Cook the cakes for 25 - 30 minutes or until done. Once done leave to cool and then comes the best part: decorating!

To decorate I used normal icing sugar. To make this you just add the icing sugar with water, I didn't measure any of this I just played it by ear. I made 3 bowls and then mixed food colouring into two. I swirled around the different colours onto the cakes and added sprinkles and the little people!

Honestly, I wont be on GBBO any time soon but these cakes are so easy and yummy!

    1. Thank you! They're not as professional looking as some peoples but they did turn out quite cute! And they tasted good which was the main thing!
