Witches Hat Halloween Cupcakes - Bake It Fair

With Halloween on the horizon now is the ideal to get the baking tins out to create some spooky themed cupcakes to enjoy at your petrifying parties! These are so simple and therefore ideal for little people to help with too.





Ingredients
For the cupcakes
100g self-raising flour
100g caster sugar (Fairtrade)
100g butter
2 medium eggs
20g cocoa powder (Fairtrade)

To decorate
85g Butter
170g Icing sugar (Fairtrade)
Green food colouring
200g Chocolate (Fairtrade)
12 Ice cream cones




Method
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Combine the flour, sugar, butter, eggs and cocoa in a bowl until smooth.
Divide the mixture between 12 cake case in a baking tray and place in the oven until risen (12-15 minutes approx).
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.



Melt the chocolate carefully in the microwave or on the hob on a low heat then allow it to cool slightly.
Using a spoon, scoop the chocolate over the exterior of the ice cream cones and spread over them until they are completely covered. Pop them in the fridge to set for around 10 minutes.



To make the butter cream icing combine the butter and icing sugar in a bowl until smooth. Add a few drops of green food colouring as required then decorate the cupcakes.



Once the chocolate has set on the ice cream cones place one on top of each cupcake to create a witches hat. If you wish you can add other bits to decorate..



Scoff!

We used Fairtrade sugar, cocoa powder, icing sugar and chocolate making these cupcakes to support the Fairtrade cause.
