This year is flying by so quickly, I can’t believe that it is nearly Halloween. I wanted to create some fun but not too scary as I find lots of halloween bakes are just too scary so this super simple take on spiders web/pumpkin cupcakes is just that a bit of fun.

Halloween is coming up very soon so why not try baking some of these cupcakes!


Prep time: 15 mintues Cook time: 18-20 minutes
Serves: 12 Category: Cupcake


For the decoration:


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180c/160c Fan/Gas Mark 4. Line a cupcake tray with cases.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar together until it is smooth and creamy.
  3. Add in the eggs one at a time, ensuring they are mixed completely each time.
  4. Add the flour, xanthum gum and vanilla extract and mix until all combined.
  5. Mix in the food colouring until the perfect orange colour has been created.
  6. Spread the cupcake mixture into the cupcake cases and bake for 18 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  7. Leave to cool for 5 minutes in tray and then place on a wire rack to completely cool before decorating.
  8. To make the butter-icing, mix the butter and icing sugar well until completely combined and smooth. Then separate into 2 bowls, into one bowl add the orange colouring and the other add black food colouring.
  9. Once cupcakes are cool, pipe the orange icing onto the cupcakes. Then using the black icing create a spiders web on each cupcake and enjoy!
