The Fabulous Bakin’ Boys Spooky Cupcakes

Now I'm all for brands that do themed products and more so when its a moist tasty cupcake.
I was sent the fabulous Spooky cupcakes from aptly named The Fabulous Bakin' Boys. I could choose between Blackcurrant and Apple or Choc n' Blood Orange. Being a citrus fan and the fact they look like Halloween cakes I chose the latter!

What I love firstly is the cupcakes are individually wrapped, so ideal for Halloween lunches for the little ones at school. Secondly I have a teen son who spots a new packet of cakes or biscuits, rips open the box demolishes a few and leaves the rest for us. Now in a lot of boxes of cakes where its the selection altogether in a tray, this means often by the time I fancy one they are dry and unappealing.

Each wrapper has a trick on and Conor had to have a messy one, It was  to eat the cupcake from the back of his hand. He found it a doddle after this shot it disappeared hands free into the chasm!
The orange topping is the perfect Halloween colour, soft sweet and a lovely flavour which by the way is free from artificial colour and flavours.
The chocolate sponge as with all The Fabulous Bakin' Boys products is deliciously soft and moist.
The only spooky thing in our house, well not all that spooky, is that they disappeared before our eyes!!

  1. These look (and sound) yummy. Thanks for the review, Jo - I must look out for them.

  2. These would be perfect for my Halloween party, grown-ups though we all are...

  3. These would be great for the kids to decorate on Halloween, don't know if the 'trick or treaters' would want the end results though, my lot can be messy decorators :-)

  4. They look great and sound yummy, great review :)

  5. Saw these today and wondered if they were any good!
    I liked the look of the black currant ones - sometimes with shop bought cakes the icing can be dry & crumbly but these sound delicious!

    Think I will give them a try after all!
    Thanks x

  6. Ooh I don't need a reason to eat cake ;)

  7. I have to say, I've always found cupcakes like this to taste awfully synthetic. The flavours sound interesting though.
