  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt

Frosting ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff
  • 2 c powdered sugar

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F. Grease a 12 capacity muffin tin or line the holes with paper cases.

  3. Add milk, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla to flour mixture and mix together on medium speed until well combined.

  5. Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin tin.
  6. Bake for 12 to 18 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  7. To make the frosting, beat the butter until creamy.
  8. Add the marshmallow fluff and incorporate it into the butter well.
  9. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla until you reach your desired consistency.
  10. Pipe the frosting onto the fully cooled cupcakes to resemble ghosts and decorate with candy eyes.
