WICKED WITCH HAT CUPCAKES

LEVEL : EASY    SERVES 12

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cups (375 ml) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon (7.5 ml) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) salt
  • 1 cup (250 ml) sugar
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) cocoa
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (250 ml) milk

WITCH HATS

  • 12 store-bought mini cones
  • Melted chocolate
  • Pieces of green licorice
  • Pieces of black licorice

DIRECTIONS

  1. With the rack in middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a 12 cavity muffin tray with paper liners.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the sugar and cocoa. Add the oil, eggs, vanilla and beat with an electric mixer at high speed or until mixture is smooth. At low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk. Scoop the batter into the molds.
  4. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a cake comes out clean. Cool and store in an airtight container.

Witch Hats Preparation

  1. With a pastry brush, generously cover the outside of the mini cones with the melted chocolate. Place the cones (open side down) on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
  2. On another baking sheet, with a teaspoon, form 5-cm (2-inch) in diameter discs with melted chocolate. Place a cone (open side down) in the centre of each disc. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Assembly

  1. Top the chocolate cupcakes with orange frosting. Garnish each cupcake with a witch hat. Wrap a green licorice around the hat to form a cord. Attach pieces of black licorice to the hat’s cords.
