Ingredients

  • 175g self raising flour
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 110g Kerrygold Pure Irish Salted Butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 50ml of water/milk
  • Orange food colouring
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 3 cups of Icing sugar
  • 1 teaspon of lemon juice
  • 8 Marshmallows
  • 50g Dark Chocolate

Directions

Simply delicious and creative. The perfect treat for your family this Halloween.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°c and line a cupcake tray with paper cases.
  2. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the centre of the bowl and break in the 2 eggs and add the butter in small pieces. Using an electric hand mixer beat all the ingredients together until combined.
  3. Add in half the milk/water and beat again until combined. You are looking for the batter to be light and creamy. Add the rest of the liquid if you need it- you may not.
  4. Add a drop or two of orange food colouring and mix through. Add further food colouring until you achieve your desired colour.
  5. Divide the batter evenly into the paper cases and place in an oven for 15-20 minutes or until firm and light brown on top.
  6. Allow to cool on a wire rack before applying the decoration.
  7. Combine the egg whites and icing sugar in a medium-size mixing bowl and whip with an electric mixer on medium speed until opaque and shiny, about 5 minutes.
  8. Whisk in the lemon juice, this will thin out the icing. Beat for another couple of minutes until you reach a thin spreading consistency
  9. Once the cupcake has cooled, drizzle the thinly consisted royal icing over the top, allowing this to spill over the edges of the cupcake.
  10. Using a clean paintbrush, dab the melted chocolate on to each marshmallow to draw a ghoulish ghost face.
  11. Nestle your marshallow ghost on top of each iced cake while icing is still wet and leave to set.
