Spooky Halloween Chocolate Cakes

Kids will love these Halloween Spooks made in a silicone cake mould from Premier Housewares.
The mould is microwave safe, dishwasher safe and of course can be used in the oven up to 230 degrees; it can also go in the freezer too.


The eyes and mouths didn't show up to well in my finished cakes, but I'm not one to be beaten so I used a micro marshmallow cut into three pieces; just cut one piece slightly bigger than the other two to make the mouth.  Stick them on with a tiny bit of marmalade and the jobs a gooden.  Anyway, kids will love to decorate their own spooks!




I did try to make jellies in this mould but it didn't work for me, perhaps I'm missing something here but I couldn't get the jellies to come out in one piece.

To make cakes I found you have to lightly oil the mould before adding your cake mixture and then they turn out easily.

To make 6 spooks you will need:
110g unsalted butter
110g caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 x medium eggs - free range of course
75g self-raising flour - sieved
25g cocoa powder - sieved
* plus 6 micro marshmallows to decorate


Method: 
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4

Cream together the butter and sugar until pale in colour and fluffy.  Add the vanilla extract and gradually beat in the eggs.

Fold in the remaining flour and the cocoa powder.

Put the silicon mould onto a baking sheet and spoon the mixture equally into each of the moulds.

Bake in the center of the oven for 15 - 20 minutes until well risen and firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a cooling rack.

Once the cakes have cooled, slice the bottoms of each spook to make the base flat then decorate.
