FAE's Kitchen Faery Sharon Williams

Hubble Bubble Pop and Fizzle, Cauldron Glitter and Fire Crackle. Mwhahahaha … ahem sorry about that. I got a little carried away, its that time of year where Muggles don there finest faery or witchy clothing and almost blend in with the other worlders!,Halloween is that magical time when the veil between this world and the other is at its thinest. Chief Faery Karen has headed down to Avalon in preparation of being host to the magical event that is the Samhain Faery Ball (which has already sold out!!!), Fairies across the land can expect to have a wonderful evening full of dancing and merriment. But for those who can’t.. like me, I’ve been baking up some spooky Halloween treats!

Scary Samhain Treats!

My Halloween themed Cupcakes

(Optional 2-3tsp of chocolate powder (i used green and blacks))

250 g unsalted butter,

softened 250 g

golden caster sugar250 g

self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder 4 eggs

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 170C/ fan 150C/gas 3. Line muffin trays with 18 Cupcake papers.

2. Place all the cupcake ingredients into a mixing bowl. Beat together, preferably with an electric

mixer, until the mixture is pale and fluffy

3. Spoon the mixture into the cupcake papers and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove

from the oven and allow to cool for five minutes in the tin, before transferring to a wire rack.

For decoration

I’ve used buttercream icing with orange and black food colouring

for the buttercream all you need is 60g Butter (softened) and 175g Icing Sugar mix together till

smooth.

You can add all kinds of different sweets and sprinkles for your own cupcakes.

Joeys Fairy Mushrooms.

One Packet of Marzipan

Red food colouring

surgical gloves

Method:

Cut Marzipan in half, in a bowl place half the block and add 3 drops of the Red food Colouring.

Its going to get a bit messy so pop the gloves on and mix the colouring into the Marzipan till its all

the same shade, then mold into mushroom caps. Place the caps to one side and pick up the other

half and break off a bit to make little dots to put on the Caps. Roll out bigger bits of the white

marzipan to make the stalks of the mushroom. Then get the caps place on the stalks and tadaaaa

fairy mushrooms or course you can use any colour you like!
