Horror Film Style Gory Cupcakes!!!!

Ahh! Those Poor Sour Patch Kids!!
Ok film time has finished, time for that recipe!
Recipe-Makes 14 Cupcakes:
·       225g plain flour, sifted
·       2  teaspoon baking powder, sifted
·       ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda, sifted
·       2 tsp mixed spice, sifted
·       1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon, sifted
·       1/2  tsp salt, sifted
·       400g canned pumpkin puree (I used Libby’s)
·       80g unsalted butter, melted
·       55g golden caster sugar
·       120ml evaporated milk
·       2 large eggs
·       1 tsp vanilla extract
Cream Cheese Frosting:
·       300g icing sugar, sifted
·       200g cream cheese
·       1 teaspoon mixed spice
·       110g unsalted butter, plus a little extra to grease the baking tin
To decorate:
·       Red food colouring
·       Sour Patch Kids with the heads cut off
·       Muffin tin lined with cupcake cases
·       Wooden spoon/ spatula/ Electric whisk
·       Bowl x 2
·       Jug
·       Sieve
·       Can opener
·       Straw

1.    Pre-heat the oven to190c/375f/Gas Mark 5 and line the cupcake tin with cupcake cases.
2.    Make the frosting first as it needs 2 hours to thicken in the fridge.
This will make it easier to spread. To make the frosting, in a large bowl beat the butter and cream cheese with an electric whisk/ wooden spoon/ spatula.
3.    Gradually the rest of the icing sugar until the frosting is smooth and creamy. You can make it last however, to make it very gooey and very drippy so it looks halloweeny.
4.    In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, mixed spice, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Put to one side.   
5.    In the other bowl, on medium speed if using an electric hand whisk, beat together the pumpkin, butter, evaporated milk, vanilla and eggs until smooth.
6.    Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. 

7.    Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester, until golden and risen. Cool tins for 5 minutes, then place onto a wire rack to cool completely. Make sure that the cakes are completely cool before icing.
8.    Spoon into icing bag and ice the cupcakes with the gooey icing.

9.    Using the red food colouring, get a straw and splash icing so it looks like blood. Then decorate with sour patch kids cut in half so it looks like a massacre. 

So in a little more detail: How to Bloody Up Your Cupcakes
1. Dip your straw into your liquid food colouring. Cover the top of the straw with your thumb.
2.Hover your straw above your chosen cupcake and release your
thumb so that the food colouring drips onto the cupcake. 
3.This will create a 'blood effect' and that's how you make a gory cupcake! 

In the end you will have a good and gory cupcake that you will be able to eat and Halloween night!

Have a good weekend and a Happy Halloween!
