Bake for 15 – 20 minutes

How to test if your buns/ cupcakes are ready

  • Remove cakes from the oven. Push a skewer into the centre of one, if the skewer comes out clean your buns are ready, if cake mixture is stuck to the skewer, bake for a another few minutes or until the skewer comes out clean.
  • Leave cakes to cool slightly and then place on a wire tray to cool completely.

Halloween Cake Decorations

  • Make your icing sugar (as directed on the packet) – we used approx 3 tablespoons of icing sugar
  • Spread icing evenly over your buns, leave to set slightly and then top with your Halloween toppers and ghost picks – simple, but really effective, tasty cupcakes!

 Finally, invite your friends and family round for your Halloween party and enjoy your lovely buns / fairy cakes / cupcakes!
