gothic cockroach cupcakes
Alas not back to full time blogging yet... but I do have a week of Halloween baking I'll be posting.
I'm saying "Halloween", but really I'm in vampire mode as my step-son Daniel readies himself to shoot his end of year short film to complete his first year of film studies. Yes, it's going to be a vampire story. To celebrate today's cupcakes have a gothic feel, thanks in part to Martha Stewart's gothic bug halloween cupcake liners and partly because I'm old enough to remember a time when vampires didn't sparkle!!
Quick and easy to make, you will need...
12 iced, frosted or fondant topped cupcakes (I used choc/caramel cakes with caramel fondant)
12 rubber or plastic cockroaches or suitable creepy crawlies
1/2 cup crushed plain chocolate biscuits (cookies)
Dig a a hole in your cakes with the point of a small sharp knife, sprinkle a few biscuit crumbs in and around the hole then insert your cockroach.
That's it, happy baking :)
My cockroaches came from SilverCrow Creations.
*if serving to children under two years of age replace rubber/plastic bugs with lolly versions.
More rubbery creepy crawlies with quick and easy along came the spiders cupcakes....
