Everyone always seems to be more organised for events than I am. I have had plenty of forewarning for halloween with black, orange and green halloween sweets, drinks and decorations in all the shops and plenty of planned ‘ Trick or Treating’ over the weekend in the neighbourhood. Even with all the lead up to the day I only had some strips of Woolworths ghoulish dracula sweet teeth and I wanted to make some ghoulish halloween cupcakes for tonight.
Here was my plate of ingredients for my cupcakes: chocolate cupcakes, raspberry syrup and dracula sweet teeth. These sweets from Woolworths are particularly yummy.
I spooned the delicious raspberry syrup over the cupcakes fresh and hot from the oven. I wanted an extra texture to the halloween cupcake hence my idea to try the syrup as a thick layer on top of the cupcake. The syrup was another one of the new products I found at the Good Food and Wine Show. This particular syrup is thick and really fruity and not too sweet. It formed a beautiful glaze over the cupcakes.
The final act for this halloween drama was to ice the cupcakes with vanilla icing and decorate them with the dracula sweet teeth and a few drops of sugarpaste blood. Here are my completed ghoulish halloween cupcakes. My family loved them and the raspberry syrup just gave them the edge to my traditional chocolate cupcakes. I was really scared after eating the first one…….really scared that I would eat too many they were that gorgeous!
Bite into these cupcakes if you dare!
