Halloween pumpkin cakes - seasonal idea from Macphie



  1. Place the Mississippi Muffin & Cake Mix into a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle and beat on slow speed whilst gradually adding the liquids for 1 minute then scrape down.

  2. Mix on middle speed for 6 minutes and blend in the orange food colouring until you have your desired colour.

  3. Spoon the mix into domed moulds and bake for 25 mins at 180°C. Once cooked, remove from the moulds and place on a wire rack to cool.

  4. Whip the Macphie Mactop® Extra with the orange food colouring until 3 times its volume and fill a piping bag.

  5. Trim your orange domes so you have half rounds then pipe with the whipped Mactop and sandwich two rounds together.

  6. Place the white chocolate chips as eyes, pipe dots for pupils with the Macphie 5th Avenue® Dark Chocolate Icing, followed by lines to emphasise the pumpkin shape. Finish with chocolate flakes for stems.
