Halloween sweets 2

We know our first halloween cupcakes were almost perfect, little witches and spiders feed us during… well, only 2 minutes… it was the cupcakes fault we swear!! But the thing is that we wanted to be more creative so we decided that maybe a different kind of cupcakes could be done. Lately, there have been a new trend in which people put their cupcakes in a jar and they look absolutely perfect (here is the link to some pics on Pinterest: ) so inspired in these pictures we decided that we could do something similar we are going to call them “cupcakes in a glass” (we know, the name is no original at all). They are perfect for any occasion, specially if you’re having a dinner and you don’t know what to serve for deserts. Here’s the recipe and some pictures. Enjoy them!

Ingredients for the cupcakes:

  • 2 eggs
  • 175 gr. flour
  • 2 spoons of baking powder
  • 115 gr. butter
  • 200 gr. sugar
  • 1 spoon of vanilla extract
  • 120 ml milk

Ingredients for the buttercream:

  • 1 spoon of vanilla extract
  • 75 gr. butter
  • 300 gr de icing sugar

Recipe:

Firstly, we add the butter and the sugar in a bowl and we mix it until it reaches a white color and it looks creamy. Then add the two eggs and cream again the mass.

With a sifter, sieve the flour and the baking powder into the bowl in which the butter mix has been done. Mix everything until you can’t tell them apart. Finally, add the milk and the vanilla extract and mix everything again at medium speed.

Preheat the oven at 180ºC and prepare the cupcakes capsules. You can add some butter to them so your cupcakes don’t get sticked on the paper capsules. Fill 2/3 of the cupcake capsule with the final mass and put all your cupcakes in the oven. You’re almost done! wait approximately 20 minutes and get off the cupcakes from the oven and wait until they are cold.

While you wait, you can start doing the buttercream.  Put the  butter and the icing sugar in a bowl and with your mixer, beat  them until you can’t differentiate the two ingredients. Then, add the vanilla extract, mix again and there you have your buttercream! If you want, you can add some colorant so they look more cutie, in our case we’ve added black and orange colorant.

When your cupcakes get cold, cut them in a half. Put the bottom in a glass, fill it with the black buttercream and cover everything with the top of your cupcake. Then, with the orange buttercream, cover the top of your cupcake glass and if you want add some decorations. We have added sugar pumpkins and skeletons as it’s halloween!
