Step 1: Halloween Cupcakes
I’m now going to show you how to make Halloween cupcakes and as an example, I’ll be putting a cobweb on a cupcake. So, it takes some butter cream and I’m using green-colored butter cream here for a Halloween look. This butter cream is basically icing sugar, butter and some milk combined, and I flavoured it with vanilla essence. So, just pipe that across your cupcake, like so. Now, there are actually two ways of piping a cobweb onto a cupcake and they are just different techniques. One isn’t any simpler than the other way really, so first of all, I will show you one technique. So, the first technique I will show you is using a piping bag with black icing in. All you have to do is pipe a dot in the middle of your cupcake and then draw lines going outwards like so. You can do as many lines or as few lines as you like and then all you have to do is draw a straight line horizontally between each of these lines like so. This will give your cupcake a cobweb effect which is so popular at Halloween. And here we have one example of how to make a cobweb cupcake. For my next example, it’s very similar, pipe green icing onto your cupcake like so. You can do this with green icing, it will look fantastic even with white icing or with orange icing which is obviously very good for Halloween and this cupcake will go down a treat at your children’s Halloween parties or even if you feel like sending them into school. And just make a dome shape on your cupcake and this time, pipe a large round dot in the middle of your cupcake and then pipe on some concentric circles going round the side of your cupcake like so. And then taking a toothpick, just drag the toothpick down through your icing like so to give it a scary cobweb look which is similar to the icing lines that we’ve done before but I just feel that this is a slightly more sophisticated design compared to the other one. And here you have two examples of how to make Halloween cupcakes.
