For the cupcakes:



Buttery baking spread*, softened


½ Orange, zested

Plain flour


Baking powder

1 ½ tsp

Natural orange food colouring (or a mixture of red and yellow)

2-3 tsp

For the topping:

Milk chocolate


Dark chocolate


White chocolate


Buttery baking spread*

1 tsp

You will also need…

12 hole cupcake tin and cupcake cases, cocktail stick, small piping bag

*Recipe is based on 70% fat buttery baking spread 

Step 1 of 4

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.

Step 2 of 4

Add the plain flour, baking powder and orange zest to a bowl and set aside for later. In a large bowl, whisk together the buttery baking spread and Condensed Milk until nice and smooth. Add the egg and mix again until everything is fully combined. Add your dry ingredients and gently mix everything together using a spatula – you can add in the food colouring at this point.

Step 3 of 4

Spoon into the cases and bake for approximately 15-18 minutes until springy to the touch. Cool slightly then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Step 4 of 4

Break the milk and dark chocolate into one bowl and melt gently in the microwave, then add the butter (this will help the chocolate stay soft once set). Melt the white chocolate in a separate bowl (take care not to let it get too hot!). Fill a small piping bag with the white chocolate. Spread each cooled cake with the dark/milk chocolate then pipe white chocolate in rings on top of the cakes with one dot in the very centre. Use a cocktail stick to drag the white chocolate from the centre dot out to make web shapes! Happy Halloweeeen!
