Icky eyeball cupcakes
Great fun for kids to prepare and even more fun to eat, these easy-to-make cupcakes are a great addition to your Halloween festivities.

100g butter, softened

100g caster sugar

2 eggs, beaten

75g self-raising flour

1 pinch baking powder

2 tbsp cocoa powder

150g fondant icing

3 drops food colouring

50g icing sugar, sifted

Preheat the oven to 180oC/Gas4.

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

Add a little beaten egg, mix. Sift together the flour, baking powder & cocoa and add a little to the mixture, beating well to mix. Continue adding the egg and flour mixture in this way until they are all incorporated.

Divide the mixture between 12 cake cases and bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until risen and springy to the touch. Cool on a wire rack.

Divide the fondant icing into 12 and roll into balls, then flatten the base of each one.

Decorate using a small paintbrush and food colouring.

Add a drop of food colouring to the icing sugar along with 2 tsp of boiling water to form a thick icing.

Spoon a little icing over each cooled cake and top with an “eye ball”.
