For the cupcakes

  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan. Grease and flour 12 muffin cups or use special baking cups for cupcakes.
  • Finely chop the chocolate and add it to a bowl along with the boiling water. Mix so that the chocolate melts and then, add the cocoa powder and coffee. Continue mixing well.
  • Pour the heavy cream and vegetable oil into the bowl. Add the eggs, the vanilla, and mix until the ingredients are homogenized. Then, add the sugar and keep on mixing.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix very well until they are homogenized.
  • Divide the batter into cups, by filling each one 2/3 of the way.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Allow ten minutes for the cupcakes to cool down, inside the cups. Remove them from the cups and set aside, for 1 hour, to cool completely.

For the buttercream

  • In a mixer, using the paddle attachment, beat the butter, icing sugar, and vanilla extract on medium speed, until fluffy, for about 15 minutes.
  • Then, add the milk by lowering the speed.
  • Continue beating for 10 more minutes.
  • Place the buttercream in a pastry bag.

To assemble

  • Roll out the sugar paste, so that it is 2-3 millimeters thick, and then, by using a round cookie cutter, cut out 12 rounds 11cm wide.
  • Put some buttercream in the center of each cupcake, in order to give it height.
  • Cover with the sugar paste and press lightly from the top to the bottom, until it becomes pleated and looks like a ghost.
  • Take a toothpick, dip its tip in black food coloring paste, and then draw the eyes of the ghosts.
