Trick or Treat!!

Today me and Maxwell decided we will make cakes - what a clever 10 month old i have!
Our task was to bake some fantastic creepy Halloween cakes!
I'm not the best at making cakes and i haven't tried to make any since i was pregnant.

You will need:
65G of caster sugar
60g Light Soft Brown Sugar
125g Self Raising Flour
2 Eggs
125g Margarine
2 tbsp Milk
25g Chocolate chips - Optional!
Icing - Black, White, Purple, Orange

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Empty the Caster Sugar, Brown Sugar, Self Raising flour and the chocolate chips to the
mixing bowl.

Add the egg bit by bit and then the butter and mix well and then add the milk.

Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases evenly.

Bake the cupcakes for 15 mins until they are golden brown - make sure you do not keep opening the oven door when baking.

Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool.

We then decorated the cupcakes with icingg. We used the Icing to make Halloween shapes, Spiders, Witch, Ghost and a pumpkin.

We used black, orange, purple and white icing.

With the spider we rolled 2 black balls into round shapes and joined them together to make the head and body, we then rolled 8 long lines and attached these to the body to make the legs. We then used 2 small orange balls to make the eyes and a purple ball to make its nose.

The pumpkin is made of a orange ball with 2 black balls to make the eyes the smile is made out of long lines of black icing - you can shape the smile as you wish and the 2 leafs on the top of the pumpkin are made with purple icing shaped into leafs and attached to the top of the pumpkin with one leaf pointing upwards.

 The Witch is made up off 2 black balls and one white ball attached to the cake to make a face. The hat is made out of a purple long shape with the hat flicking up and has icing to add to the decoration.

The ghost is made of white icing and was shaped into a ghost shape, i then attached the 2 arms to its body and used black icing small balls to make the face.




We really enjoyed baking and although Maxwell is young he still managed to help mix the mix and helped weigh out the ingredients.
