Very easy Mummy cakes

Okay there is a lot of amazing and fantastic Halloween baking out there. I love it and I really love it all but I am a ‘no faff’ person when it comes to baking. Don’t get me wrong I occasionally indulge in pain staking decorating exercises for the sheer pleasure but generally ‘no faff’ is ultimately more me.

halloween mummy cakes These super easy Mummy cakes, are perfect for you and your kids to whip up. They are also super easy to decorate some ready made cakes if you want to have even less faff. Personally and being gluten-free I love the baking part too so I made ours.

Halloween, when my two were younger was SO looked forward to. As well as adding friends, trick or treating, a bit of seasonal baking and making was done. Decorations made, decorations bought and little games made up. Blinded folded guess what is in the bucket, pumpkins seeds always a good one. If you are having a Halloween gathering you are bound to have some of them that might of gone in the bin. Mind roasted pumpkins seeds are a firm favourite here!

I used white chocolate cake covering which I have to say was runnier than when I have used white chocolate. So I have stuck with white chocolate in the recipe as it will give you a easier Mummy bandage!  You can of course get the piping bag out using the writing knozzle or free hand it drizzling it off a spoon. Mummy cakes come in all freehand design so go with the flow and just drizzle away. No room for perfectionists here.

I think a plate of these will look fab for a Halloween tea. For me it is the little things that our children remember and a bit of fun cake making and eating really can’t be beaten!

Ingredients
Servings: cakes
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC and put 12 cake cases into a 12 hole cake pan.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the beaten eggs slowly. Add 1-2 tbls of the flour at the same time to avoid the mixture curdling. Beat until well combined.
  4. Mix the remainder of the flour and cocoa powder together. Then gently fold into the butter, sugar and egg mixture along with the milk and vanilla extract.
  5. Fill the 12 cup cases with the mixture and bake for 15 minutes on until the cakes are springy to touch.
  6. Once cooked leave to cool for 5 minutes in the cake pan and then leave to cool completely on a cooling tray.
  7. Once the cakes are cooled. Place the white chocolate in a heat resistant bowl over a pan of simmering water and melt. Remove from the heat.
  8. Use dabs of the melted chocolate to stick the chocolate drops on to the white chocolate buttons, to make the eyes. I used a cocktail stick for this as you only need a little. Then use a little melted chocolate on the back of the chocolate button and stick two onto each cakes.
  9. Now get either a spoon and drizzle your mummy bandages or use a piping bag with the writing nozzle. Bandage away and then leave to set. Then enjoy!
