How To Make Halloween Spiderweb Cupcakes
Trick or treat your way to some baking with the children this Halloween and have a go at making at these spooky spider web cupcakes. Quick to make and even quicker to eat – they’re scarily delicious! Ideal for children aged 7-11 years old.
Ingredients for the cupcakes:
- 125g butter at room temperature cut into large pieces
- 125g self-raising flour
- 125g caster sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2-3 tbsps milk
- 2 large eggs
Ingredients for the icing:
- 150g icing sugar
- Warm water
- Brown/black tube of writing icing
- Cocktail stick
- Before you begin, make sure that all little hands are clean and clothes are protected.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.
- Line a 12-hole muffin tray with cupcake cases.
- Put the butter, caster sugar, self-raising flour, eggs, vanilla extract, milk and baking powder into a large bowl and mix them together thoroughly using a wooden spoon or an electric hand whisk.
- Divide the mixture evenly into the cupcake cases and then pop them in the oven for approximately 20 minutes or until they are well risen and firm on top. Insert a metal skewer to see if it comes out clean to make sure the cakes are cooked. Pop the cupcakes onto a wire rack to cool.
- To make the icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl and gradually stir in some warm water to get a smooth consistency. You don’t want it too runny or else you won’t be able to make your spider’s webs.
- When the cakes are completely cold, spread on a little icing right to the edges.
- Using a writing icing tube, draw 3 circles starting with a small one in the middle and radiating outwards. Then take a cocktail stick and drag the circles from the middle to the edge of the cake to create your webs.
- For chocolate cupcakes replace 25g of the flour with good quality cocoa powder
