If you know me, you’ll know that I am a huge fan of Halloween. Each year I love to create new spooky recipes to inspire you to create your own Halloween goodies. This year with everything being a *little* bit different, there’s no time like the present to whip up a batch of cupcakes, make yourself some spooky bark or even put together some zombie glass cheesecakes to make Halloween for your family special even though the normal traditions are sadly off the table.
So, recently I took to my kitchen and decided to try and create another new creepy Halloween cupcake recipe for you to recreate. As always, I am a huge fan of simple yet, tasty recipes.
Frankenstein's Revenge Cupcakes Recipe
- Cupcake tray
- Cupcake cases
- Star Nozzle
- Piping Bag
- Some Halloween Treats
- 115 g Self Raising Flour
- 40 g Cocoa Powder
- 3 Eggs
- 175 g Unsalted Butter
- 4 tbsp Water
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 165 g Caster Sugar
- 60 g Unsalted Butter
- 3 tbsp Milk
- 250 g Icing Sugar
- 3 drops Green Food colouring
For The Icing (optional)
- 125 g Icing Sugar
- 15 g Water
For The Cupcakes
- Start by weighing out all of your ingredients and then pour the partially melted butter and sugar into a bowl and mix together.
- Next whisk your eggs and vanilla extract into the mixture.
- Sift your flour and cocoa powder through your sieve into the mixture and stir in.
- Split the mix into 12 cases and put to bake for 25 minutes
- Once your timer is up, take your cakes out of the oven and poke them with a cocktail stick or fork, if it comes out clean then your cakes are ready. Then leave them to cool.
- When cooled, scoop out the middle section of the cake, ready for the buttercream filling.
For The Decoration
- First you will need to mix your butter, milk and icing sugar together, I prefer to do this by hand to make sure it's fluffy and soft. Once this result is achieved, follow the next step.
- Next add your green food colouring to the mixture and slowly add in until you're happy with the green, I went for a more vibrant green. as contrasted against the brown it looked more bold.
- Fill your piping bag with the icing and pipe inside the cakes. Followed by adding a range of treats on top as well as sprinkling the remaining cake on the top lightly.
- For the final step I made up my icing using the icing sugar and water, then added black food colouring and stir through. To complete my cakes as I drizzled some icing over the top to give it that extra spooky finish.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe and if you’d like to make your own Frankenstein’s revenge cupcakes.
