Mix butter and sugar in a bowl and beat till it's a little fluffy. Add
vanilla essence to it and beat well again. Add sieved flour and baking
powder to the batter of butter and sugar. Blend till you find the batter
light. Keep the batter aside for some time. In the meanwhile preheat oven
at 200 degree and grease you cupcake mould with little oil or butter.
Place the liners in the mould for each cupcake separately. Add nuts,
raisins, egg and grated chocolate to the batter and pour in the moulds.
Heat the cake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
Filling for cupcakes:
• Prepare fill in for cupcakes with butter, egg white, vanilla essence
and melted chocolate. Stir these together till a little light and fluffy.

with white melted chocolate for striped bandages of mummy.
Blend all the ingredients well and beat till fluffy. Put the white butter
cream icing in the icing bag with broad nozzle and lay thick overlapping
strips as of a mummy. Lay multicolored crackle balls in place for eyes.
Ice the cup cakes for 4-5 hours to get proper effect and taste.
• You can try different fillings and flavors such as jam, mashed fruits
and crushed walnut in the cupcake.

just icing would do the rest.

burn up your Halloween treat.
