Halloween Baking - Easy Witch Hat Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Now, I've never been a fan of the spooky horror behind Halloween - even though creating Halloween makeup is my favourite; so I wanted to create a cute version a witch cupcake. Perfect for Halloween parties or just to devour before cozied up with a hot chocolate and watching Hocus Pocus! And for all you stranger things fans, I hope you enjoy my eleven pose in the pictures, if they're ever looking for an older one, I think I've got it nailed.

On to the recipe -
Chocolate Chip Cupcake - 
100g margarine/butter
100g caster sugar
2 eggs
100g self-raising flour
100g chocolate chips
1tsp vanilla extract
Buttercream - 
400g icing sugar
175g butter
3 tbsp milk
Green food colouring 
Fondant witch hat 

1. Preheat your oven to gas mark 5/ 190C / 365F and prepare cupcake tray with cases - I'd reccomend Halloween ones so black, silver, green or orange.
2. Whisk together the caster sugar and margarine until pale
3. Gradually add the eggs and vanilla extract
4. Fold in the self raising flour
5. Add in the chocolate chips
6. Spoon into cupcake cases until 3/4 full 
7. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until golden brown 
8. Whilst the cupcakes are cooling make the buttercream - cream together the icing sugar and butter together until pale and smooth - should be for around 5 minutes
9. Add in milk to get the correct consistency and add green colouring until desired colour is reached
10. Pipe in a circle on top of the cupcake and place witch hat on top

Hope you enjoy creating these treats, have a wonderful Halloween - Enjoy xx
