Vampire Bite Cupcakes for Halloween – Cooking with kids

We love baking and these vampire bite cupcakes are perfect for Halloween and super simple to decorate (I feel a little embarrassed even doing a tutorial for them), but they are perfect for baking with kids and you can let them take over.

We used our fail safe chocolate sponge recipe as the cake base, but you can use a packet.  I am not a cake snob, but do think that learning a simple sponge is perfect for kids to measure and make.

Vampire Bite Cupcakes


6 oz or 175 grams  of margarine or butter
6 oz or 175 grams  of caster sugar
2 eggs
5 oz (150 grams) and 1 oz (30 grams) of cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
half teaspoon of baking powder
3 teaspoons of milk

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C or 350 degrees fahrenheit.

Allow the margarine or butter to come to room temperature.

Cream the sugar and margarine together, then add the rest of the ingredients.

Put into case cases and cook for 15 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.  We use an ice cream scoop for filling the cases, that way they are much easier for kids to fill the cake cases.

Gradually add the Vanilla Marshmallow Fluff large spoonfuls at a time, until all is incorporated.

We didn’t even pipe on our icing, just used a small spatular to scoop it on to the cakes.  Then using a skewer make two small holes as bite marks and then using ref icing squeezed in our “blood”.
