Today darlings, in the spirit of all things scary…I bring you a FAHHHHHBULOUS Halloween treat from my new contributor and baker-extraordinaire Lily’s Sweet Factory. Her creations are so brilliant she catered my own little Princesses birthday party, where apart from moi and moi’s loin fruits – the food was legendary!
So here we go! I give you…her step by step guide for how to make DEVILS EYEBALLS MWOAHAHAHAHAHA *loud evil laughter explodes*
- One tablespoon buttercream (mixing 60g butter with 60g icing sugar and few drops of vanilla essence)
- 100g melted white chocolate chips Tesco have good ‘uns 85p.
- 100g finely grated, red vanilla sponge (you can tint your regular sponge mix batter with red food colouring, and bake it, after it cooled down, finely grate a thick slice of it with a grater or in a food processor)
- Black and green coloured ready to roll icing Lakeland have a good ones for £1.49 each.
- Disposable plastic forks
- Red writing icing trusty Tesco again £2.34
1. Finely grate a big slice of red tinted sponge, with either a cheese grater or in food processor
2. Mix the butter cream with your cake crumbs till you get a sticky dough
3. Make little balls out of your sticky dough with your hand.
4. Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave, and dip the disposable forks in the chocolate and stick them it to the balls- this secures them in place
5. Place the dough balls with forks into the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes to set a little
6. Remove from the fridge and one by one dip the ball into the melted white chocolate, and get rid of the excess drops of chocolate by gently tapping the fork at the edge of the bowl
7. Leave the pops upside down until the chocolate is cool and firmed. You could pop them in the fridge again for 10 minutes or so to speed this bit up
8. For the eye’s pupil, roll out the green and black ready to roll icing, and cut out two sized circles with the round cutters, and stick them on the eyeball with a little bit dab of water or edible glue
9. At the end use your red writing icing pen to create the blood vessels around the pupil and leave to set
10. VOILA-HA-HA-HA the scary eyeballs are ready for Halloween action!
So darlings – easy-peasy. 10 steps to being a BLOODY EVIL baking GENIUS! Thanks to the fabulous Lily’s Sweet Factory. And moi, for introducing you…..
