These Cinnamon cupcakes are really easy to make and look so impressive. They are so perfect for Halloween or just to feel some Autumn vibes in your baking. Spooky baking is absolutely my fave. I love the warm flavours and really fun decorating. You can easily vary the flavour of these cupcakes. How about replacing the cinnamon with some pumpkin spice mix for pumpkin spice cupcakes.. yum yum!

Method

Mix together the butter and sugar. You’ll see this go much lighter in colour and appear fluffy. Once at this stage you can stop the mixer, scrape down the bowl and add all the other ingredients in. Mix until combined.

Using a 56mm ice cream scoop, add a scoop of batter into each cupcake case.

Cook on 160 fan oven for 18 minutes then turn the tray around and cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until cooked.

Buttercream – Soften the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds and then mix on high for 3-4 minutes until pale and fluffy. Add in the icing sugar, cinnamon and vanilla and mix on high again for 3-4 minutes. Add in 2 tsp of boiling water to soften the consistency. Add another tsp if needed.

Decorating – 

Mix some orange food colouring into your buttercream. I used Colour mill orange. Take a Jem 2D nozzle and pop this in a piping bag along with your buttercream. Pipe a tall small swirl in the middle of the cupcake. Then starting from the bottom pipe lines up to the top of the swirl to create the pumpkin.

Mix up some brown buttercream. You can use Brown food colouring or add some cocoa powder. Using an 18 nozzle, pipe from the top of the pumpkin, straight up to form the stem. Then using some green buttercream and a 352 nozzle, pipe some leaves. Hold it like a ducks beak before you pipe.
