Ingredients

Cupcakes

225 g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
125 g butter, softened
125 g caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
200 ml milk
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
100 g raisins
125 g pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and grated

Decoration

1 tub vanilla icing
a few drops of green food colouring
white fondant icing

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a free-standing electric mixer and whisk until blended. Spoon into paper cases. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until well risen and lightly golden on top. Place the muffins on a wire rack to cool.
  3. Colour about half of the icing green, using the food colouring. When the muffins are completely cool, swirl the green icing on top of the muffins using a piping bag with a plain nozzle.
  4. Make 24 small balls of white fondant icing and flatten them to make the white of the eyes. Make smaller balls of black fondant icing and flattne them to make the pupils. Roll out some of the black icing and use this to make eyebrows and moustaches
