We've put together this really simple cupcake recipe for Spider Web Cupcakes in time for Halloween. The cupcake mixture is made from a chocolate flavoured vanilla sponge with added chocolate chips. The topping is made from simple chocolate flavoured glace icing and white chocolate for the cobweb design.

Method

  1. Set the oven to 170C / 150C fan / gas mark 5. Line a muffin tin with large paper cupcake cases.

  2. Place the butter and muscovado sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add the beaten eggs a little at a time until smooth.

  3. Using a large metal spoon fold in the flour, cocoa. vanilla, baking powder and chocolate chips.

  4. Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases. Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and just firm to the touch. Allow to cool.

  5. To make the glace icing, sift the icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl and gradually add the warm water until the icing becomes thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. If necessary, add more water (a drop at a time) or icing sugar to adjust the consistency.

  6. For the cobwebs, take 100g of white chocolate and melt gently. Use a number 2 nozzle to pipe cobweb shapes on non-stick baking parchment. Leave these to harden completely. Once set, peel off your baking parchment and place on top of your cupcakes.
