Black Velvet Cupcakes for Halloween

Pin It

Happy Halloween!

We are celebrating with some skeleton bunting, chains of bats cut out like paperdolls, decorating pumpkins and... Black Velvet Cupcakes...


Just like your average Red Velvet but with half a tube of black food colouring... I have to say it is odd working with a batter this colour and even odder eating a cake this colour, but soo tasty and seasonally appropriate.

I'm working on my icing skills but thought a cute little Jack Skellington face showed little room for error... unfortunately I got too confident and attempted a spiderweb... ended up with this...



But hey, it tasted good, and Halloween is all about been a little ragged round the edges right?

So do you guys celebrate Halloween, are you trick or treating or doing the Monster Mash?




p.s. I am totally doing Green Velvets for St Patrick's Day!

  5. Don't restrict yourself to these men--remember EST?
    Many topical lotions are definitely available and can be purchased with no prescriptions.

    They haven't had to dedicate long hrs to homework and research.
