Halloween Cupcakes

I am a little girl at heart and I still get very excited when it comes to Halloween.
Here are some red velvet Halloween themed cupcakes I baked this morning. They are extremely easy to do and really yummy too!

I took the recipe from Jemma from Crumbs & Doilies and added a bit of Halloween fun to it.

Red velvet ingredients

To make 24 cupcakes you will need:
235g Self raising flour
15g Cocoa powder
250g Caster sugar
3/4 tsp Salt
270g Soft unsalted butter
4 Large free-range eggs
3 tbs Buttermilk
1tsp Red food colour paste
1 tsp Vanilla extract
3/4 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1.5 tsp Cider vinegar
200g of plain or dark chocolate
150g of white chocolate

First you will need to get a large mixing bowl a sift the flower, cocoa powder, caster sugar and salt. Mix the dry ingredients and then add the soft unsalted butter and eggs and stir until everything is nice and smooth. If you have a kitchen aid your life will be much easier but don’t worry if you don’t, you can do it by hand like I did, it will just take longer.

Next mix the buttermilk colour paste and vanilla extract into a small bowl. It is very important to get a good colour paste. I bought one from Dr oedker and as you can see the red velvet cupcakes didn’t come out very red.

Pour the buttermilk mix into the bowl while stirring, and keep stirring until you have an even paste.

Now in a separate bowl mix the bicarbonate of soda with the cider vinegar and after it has stopped fizzing pour into the cupcake mix and stir.

When the mix in nice and smooth, line non-stick baking tray and fill the cupcake liners until they are 3/4 full. Set the oven to 170C and bake for about 23 minutes.

As soon as the cupcakes are cooked leave them to chill. Once they are cold you can start decorating them.

I opted for a very simple but yummy finish. I basically melted 200g of dark chocolate and coated the cupcakes.
As for the spider webs I melted 150g of white chocolate. I then put the melted chocolate into a piping sleeve and started drawing over parchment paper.
