Elderberry Monster Toes

I have made these for two separate parties in the last month for testing. And each time, they were devoured. So I think its a success. If you want to make something special for Halloween and have a spooky element, these are the ticket. They are surprisingly very easy. And VERY delicious. You will think that you bought them from a bakery. They are THAT special.

Elderberry Monster Toes


Madelines

Makes 18 cakes


Ingredients:

2/3 c sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 c pastry flour

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 c whole milk

2 tsp honey

15 tbs unsalted butter


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together the eggs and sugar until it becomes light in color, and the batter falls off of the whisk like a ribbon. Melt the butter and when it is cooled, add it to the eggs and sugar with the honey. Fold the butter into the batter with a spatula. Mix the flour and baking powder together and add it to the batter in two batches. Fold the flour into the batter with a spatula until smooth.

Butter and flour your Madeline pan so that the cakes slide off. Use a cookie scoop to get a walnut sized amount of batter in each mold. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let them cool.

Elderberry Buttercream


Ingredients:

1/2 cup softened unsalted butter

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

2 TBS elderberry syrup

2 cups of powdered sugar

Butterfly pea powder or purple food coloring

Raisins


Directions:

Cream the butter. Add the vanilla, and elderberry syrup. Once smooth, add the powdered sugar and whip until smooth. Add food coloring or butterfly pea powder for a natural purple dye.

2 teaspoons of pea powder for a lavender color. 1-2 tablespoons of pea powder for a deep purple color. I like to do half lavender and half deep purple.


Spread the buttercream on each cake, use a fork to rake across the top lightly to look like monster fur. Add raisins to the ends to look like toes.
