Terrify your guests and serve up little aliens with coffee. But maybe not at just any old coffee party - these are best for a Halloween menu. Bake your favourite cupcakes and pipe with a delicious orange-coloured buttercream. Dye the buttercream with yellow and red gel food colouring and pipe on little worms. Shape silly hands with orange sugarpaste and stick them into the buttercream. We rolled the eyes with white sugarpaste, attached a lolly stick, and then stuck them into the middle of the cakes. The irises, pupils and lids are all made of sugarpaste. Use CMC powder to make the sugarpaste details; this way, the figures will dry faster and retain their shape better.
Serve up something truly terrifying for Halloween, like spiders. Bake your favourite cupcakes and pipe with a delicious buttercream.

Use CMC powder to make the sugarpaste details; this way, the figures will dry faster and retain their shape better. We've listed the products that we used here below.

- Want to serve up a bat with coffee? We have a fun idea that you can bake for Halloween. Bake a batch of cupcakes and pipe with black buttercream. Dye the buttercream with black gel food colouring; this dye is good to use because it does not affect the consistency as much as ordinary food colouring. Make wings, ears, eyes and teeth using black and white sugarpaste. Always use CMC powder when making details with sugarpaste, so that it dries faster and is easier to work with. WINGS: Roll out black sugarpaste, punch out a large circle and split it down the middle into two halves. Use a smaller circle to punch out two curves on the straight sides, forming bat wings. EARS: Roll out black sugarpaste and punch out two small circles. Fold them a bit in the middle and stick them into the buttercream. We probably don't need to describe the eyes and teeth. Bon appétit!
Why not bake cupcakes in a coffee cup? Just check to make sure the cup is oven safe; otherwise, you can bake in our sturdy muffin cases and then serve them up in a cup. Pipe on the cupcake top with purple buttercream. All details are made of sugarpaste and glued with edible glue. Always use CMC powder when making details with sugarpaste, so that it dries faster and is easier to work with. HAT: Making the hat is super easy. Roll out black sugarpaste and punch out circles. Then make little cones out of black sugarpaste and glue to the centre of each circle. Let harden. LEGS: You can also make the legs in a flash: punch out tiny circles in slightly thicker rolled sugarpaste (black and white), then stack them on top of each other, alternating black and white. Apply a dab of glue to each circle to help them stick. Finish the legs with cute little shoes made of red sugarpaste. FINISH: Once all the legs have shoes and have firmed up, poke them along with the hat into the purple buttercream. Maybe the best cake ever for Halloween?
Here is how to make edible ghosts (cake pops) for decorating your cupcakes. Bake or buy the cupcakes and prepare them beforehand. We piped our cupcakes with black buttercream. TO MAKE THE GHOST: First bake a sponge cake flavoured with either lemon or chocolate, let cool completely. Then mix the sponge cake and cream cheese into a firm but pliable dough. Roll big balls, approx. Ø30 mm. Make one cake pop for each cupcake. Put the balls on a plate and place in the freezer for about 30 minutes, then take them out again. Melt chocolate in a small bowl. Dip one end of a lolly stick in the chocolate and poke one into each ball to make cake pops. Let firm up for about a minute so that the lolly stick adheres to the pop. Then stick one cake pop into each cupcake (which you prepared earlier). Roll out white sugarpaste and use a circle cutter to punch out circles. Place the punched-out circle over the cake pop and drape to form a ghost. Draw black eyes with a food colouring pen.
This year, our Halloween party has a creepy wedding theme, and so does the cake, which we covered with purple sugarpaste. We used various fruits for decoration, including dried orange slices; orange contrasts nicely with purple. Physalis husks become incredibly gruesome with rolled sugarpaste eyes inside, and branches from grape clusters dipped in dark chocolate look very striking beneath them. We also added little sugar eyes to some of the branches. When working with tiered cakes, it can sometimes be challenging to create a nice finish. Here, we've concealed the seams with a decorative stripe of white skulls between each tier. Topping this masterpiece is the bride; you can make her with sugarpaste and a little patience. The grave is made out of biscuits mixed with leftover chocolate from dipping the branches. Everything is attached to the cake with edible glue or buttercream.
Make a cake the guests will be talking about long after Halloween is over. The question is whether anyone will dare to cut the first slice without holding someone's hand? See the PDF below for instructions.
Why not serve up a delicious Halloween cake? METHOD: Bake the cake bases with Panduro's cupcake mix in a springform pan. Fill the layers with super tasty mousse. Then spread a thin layer of buttercream over the cake before covering it with rolled sugarpaste. The buttercream will prevent the sugarpaste from absorbing moisture from the cake bases. Cut out a bat from rolled out black sugarpaste. Use edible glue to stick on sprinkles as eyes. Attach the bat to the cake with the same glue. TIP! We punched out the moon with a cookie cutter.
