I made some fun cupcakes for Halloween this year. I chose a Spider, Bat, Pumpkin, Witches hat, Ghost and Werewolf. I thought I’d share how I made them and give you a tutorial.
Here’s what you will need for the witch hat:
Bake a batch of cupcakes, whichever recipe you prefer and leave them to cool.
For the Witches hat – Melt chocolate into a bowl and dip the cones in, stand them up and leave to set. Using a round cutter pour melted chocolate into it over greaseproof paper, not too much you just need the base of the witches hat, these don’t take long to set but if you are making a few you will have to keep the chocolate waiting to be used warm over a bowl of hot water to stop it setting. When that’s all ready, put green icing onto the cupcakes and then place the base on, add the cone onto it by using a bit of frosting inside the cone or icing round the edges. Use fondant to make the buckle ect or you can use royal icing! but fondant is easier.
- Keep chocolate warm.
- Use royal icing quickly if it’s left out it will start to set.
- When you put normal icing on the cupcakes make sure you add what ever you put on top quickly as it will set then crack when you put pressure on.
- Put fondant into position then leave it as this will crack if you try to move it later.
I hope you enjoy making these and impress all your friends, if you have any questions please feel free to ask : ) Follow me for more cake tutorials
