Toddler Halloween ~ Cupcakes

Halloween Bakes

I LOVE this time of the year for baking so I thought we'd kick start it by some Halloween bakes that Mia could join in with. These spooky cupcakes are super simple and use just a basic sponge mix. 
When made, I separated the mix in to different bowls and added some food colouring. I like the food colours gels as oppose to the liquids, I just find them not so runny and give a stronger colour. We choose orange, green and purple. 

For the icing, I made some butter cream and again initially separated the mix and added different food colour. Once i'd done the orange I thought i'd just go straight in with the purple and accidentally created this multicoloured effect which I love! There are tons of tutorials on mixing your coloured icing but this was an accident and I wasn't precise with the colours at all! For these Halloween themed cupcakes I think the icing looks great!

For the Decoration, I got these little spider toppers (and the web cases) from Asda and also the sweets which Mia used to make monster faces with. She had great fun creating her monsters!
