Halloween Baking Treats

Leave a Comment

Halloween baking is so much fun, and it doesn't always necessarily need to be hard or require a lot of time and effort, for it to look good. Here are two Halloween treats that are so quick and easy to make, but look so effective. 

Ghost Cupcakes

I always see these cupcakes all over the Internet when it comes to Halloween and they look amazing, but they are actually so quick and easy to make. 

 For this you will need:
Roll out fondant icing

You will need to start off with some cupcakes of your choice. You can either make them yourself or you can just buy them. I made chocolate ones, but it would also be a good idea to make vanilla ones and then add green or orange food colouring, too make them look more halloween themed. You will also need buttercream icing and a little chocolate ball. I used maltesers but if you don't get them where you live, you could always use something different. 

You need to remove your cupcake from the casing and flip it upside down. You then need to add some buttercream to the top of the cake and press one maltesers into the icing. After that, roll out some white fondant icing and just lay it over the top of the cupcake tower. It isn't supposed to be neat, so it is fine if there are some creases in it, but make sure it hasn't broken or ripped at all. 

The final thing that you need to do, is make eyes and a mouth. I used the fondant icing again. I put it in the microwave for a couple of seconds, to soften it up and then mixed it with black food colouring. I think rolled it up into little balls for the eyes, and slightly bigger balls for the shocked mouth. That's literally how easy it is, and they look amazing. 

Biscuit Mouths

These are the kind of thing that you can make in literally 5 minutes, and you probably have most of the components in your house anyway. 

You will need:
Red Icing

The first thing that you need to do is make icing. You can use whatever icing you want, I just made buttercream, and then add red food colouring. You can also use the little red tubes of icing that you can buy in supermarkets. After that, you will need to cut some biscuits in half. You can use whatever biscuits you like, I just went for milk chocolate digestives, because I love them. 

Then apply a layer of the icing to each half of the biscuit and stick down some mini marshmallows around the edge. Then you need to sandwich the two biscuits together, and you have a mouth. 
It is best to have your icing a little bit runny, so that it drops down like blood. Then just pop them in the fridge until the icing sets, and they are ready to eat. 

I hope you have found these helpful. If you try either of them let me know in the comments, or tweet me @beautybillboard.
