Halloween has gone so quickly but this doesn’t mean that we haven’t been working on our oven during these days. We’ve done two different kind of cupcakes, halloween cake pops, cakes and even a tiramisu!
Here you have the different recipes and some pictures of our little creations. Hope you enjoy them!!
- Coconut halloween cupcakes:
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
- 60 gr streaky coconut coco rallado
Ingredients for the buttercream:
- 150 gr. cream cheese (such as Philladelphia)
- 75 gr. butter
- 300 gr de icing sugar
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, the streaky coconut 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 cream cheese and the butter together in a bowl and with your mixer, beat them until you can’t differentiate the two ingredients. Then, add the icing sugar, 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 purple colorant.
When your cupcakes get cold, with a pastry you can cover the cupcakes with the form you want.
TIP: this kind of buttercream gets more consistent when it’s cold so after decorating your cupcakes they will look better if you keep them on the fridge fro 1-2h.
Here some pictures for you! We will keep posting
