Get your aprons on, your mixing spoons at the ready and prepare to crack some eggs because Halloween has just gotten more delicious.
With Halloween only getting closer and closer, it wont be long until all of us are rotting our teeth with delicious candies, mouth watering chocolates and those apples that people cover in toffee in the hopes that children wont realize that they have actually been tricked into eating fruit.
I decided that instead of buying candy in the usual retail stores I would instead attempt to make some Halloween themed cakes, after much debate about what creatures to base my cakes on I eventually chose owls due to them not having as much love as cats and spiders during the holiday.
What you will need to make these awesome treats
Golden Caster Sugar
Self Raising Flour
6 Medium Eggs
Milk chocolate Buttons
White Chocolate Buttons
First thing you want to do is to preheat your oven to 190 degrees, next line your cake tin full of cake cases
why fill it?
Nearly 30 cakes is why
Soften 280g of either salted or unsalted butter (I used Salted) and add it to your mixing bowl
Add 200g of self raising flour to your mixing bowl
Add 280g of golden caster sugar to your mixing bowl
Add 1 table spoon of cocoa powder to your mixing bowl
and finally crack all six medium eggs into your mixing bowl
Stir the mixture until it has become fairly smooth
Now add the mixture to your cake cases almost filling them but leaving space for them to rise
Place the cakes in the oven for 25 minutes
Once they are cooked remove them from the oven and allow them to cool, once they have cooled you can now do the messy part of decorating them.
Cover the top of each cake in the orange frosting
add a malteaser beak to each cake (I don’t recommend trying to cut them to make a beak shape as I tried this and it did not work in my favor at all)
Add two milk chocolate buttons to each cake to make the owls big eyes
Cut two white chocolate buttons in half and make the owls claws (You may run out of white chocolate buttons and if you do it doesn’t hurt to use the milk chocolate buttons for feet, I had to near the end of decorating)
Finally eat them XD
