Hallowe'en cake recipe

With Halloween just around the corner and half term in full swing, I was inspired to get baking and make some fun little cupcakes during the aftermath of the Great British Bake Off (we were definitely obsessed in the office).

We were particularly taken with Regent Street, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street where we were lucky enough to visit Anthropologie, Zara Home, Heals and Selfridges, to name but a few.
