I had 2 Halloween parties to go to this year. The first was my friend Laura's 30th do and the second was my in-laws halloween party.
Not wanting to disappoint i decided to make some cupcakes. I decided to go for vanilla cupcakes with a blood (aka jam) core.
I found these really cute cupcake cases and cutout decorations in Waitrose but nearly passed out when i got home and realised they had cost me £15.00! Luckily there was 2 dozen so enough for both parties.
For the first party i went for orange vanilla icing and black sparkly glitter. They looked really fun.
For the second party i decided to add another colour to the mix and opted for a lurid luminous green picking up on the green edging stripe on the cupcake cases.
The green cupcakes were iced lemon flavoured and the orange ones were iced vanilla flavour
The black glitter really popped off the green and added an extra dimension to the overall effect.
Next year i think i'll try some royal icing cobwebs - if i ever get round to learning how to do royal icing!!!
