Crocky Horror Review

We received a great email and we wanted to share it with everyone else.

Dear Crocky Trail,

I just wanted to say thank you for a good entertaining evening at your Crocky Horror last night with my children and a friend .

The experience was extremely worth the trip from where my children live (Derbyshire ) and myself and partners daughter from Middlewich .

I attended in a costume of  Rorschach from a film ‘Watchmen’ which made it entertaining . Staff were complimentary of my appearance and other visitors enjoyed the extra character .

I have usually attended Spooky World but having now been to Crocky Horror will highly recommend to others to attend both Crocky Trails and Crocky Horror .

Frankenstein Cupcakes

Why not make your own monsters this Halloween with this easy baking BBC recipe. Here’s how to make Frankenstein cupcakes in 3 simple steps.

frankenstein-cupcakesIngredients

For the cupcakes:

200g soft butter

175g golden caster sugar

250g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp of salt

3 large eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

100ml milk

To decorate:

300g icing sugar, sifted

2-3 tbsp. of milk

green food colouring paste

36 mini marshmallows, snipped in half

tube of black piping icing or gel

Step 1

Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with deep muffin cases. Cream the butter with the sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the remaining cake ingredients and beat until smooth. Spoon into the muffin cases and bake for 20 mins or until golden and a skewer inserted into one of the middle cakes comes out clean. Cool for 5 mins in the tin, then completely on a wire rack.

Step 2

Using a small, sharp serrated knife, cut a semi-circle piece of cake from the left and right of each cake, to make stepped edges, level with the cupcake case. Next, make
 a widthways cut about 3cm from the top 
of the cake, about 1cm deep. Slice a 5mm piece off the surface of the cake to meet this cut, to make a flat, raised face and prominent forehead. Chill for 10 mins to firm the crumbs.

Step 3

Mix the icing sugar, milk and green colouring to make a very thick icing that flows slowly from the spoon. Spoon 1 tbsp onto a cake and let it begin to spread 
itself over the cut shape. Ease it here and there with a palette knife to coat. Add marshmallow neck bolts and eyes. Repeat for each cupcake. Leave to set, then pipe on the faces and hair.
