Halloween Cupcakes!!!

My friend had a Halloween party so I took it upon myself to make Halloween cupcakes!  I used the Hummingbird chocolate sponge for all of them and the frosting is all swiss merringue buttercream.

I had a total nightmare making these as I tried to use the oven in my flat for the first time and after half the cakes literally exploded and burnt in bizarre places I decided it was the oven (not me), went to my Mum's house and produced 2 batches of perfect cupcakes so my oven remains safely switched off at the socket in disgrace!
