Spider Cakes for Halloween Recipe


Chocolate Fairy Cakes

2 eggs
4 oz (110g) caster sugar
4 oz (110g) butter
3 oz (90g) self raising four
1oz (25g) cocoa powder

To decorate

225g Icing sugar
2-3 tbsps boiling water
Black writing icing


  • With an electric whisk beat together the eggs and sugar until they are light and fluffy. You will know when you have reached this point as the colour will become lighter and the volume greater. It takes a while, even with the electric whisk
  • Fold in melted butter and flour
  • Divide the mixture between 12 cake cases in a cake tin
  • Bake at 180ÂșC for 15-20 mins
  • When the cakes have cooled, measure our your icing sugar. At first add just 2 tablespoons of boiled water and mix, ad a little more if required. Don't make it too thin or it will run off your cakes
  • When the icing has set, draw on the spider with writing icing
