As a big Harry Potter fan, I have often dreamt about making some of the magical treats mentioned by J.K. Rowling in her books. Cauldron cakes were on the top of my list to try, and although I knew what I wanted to do, I wasn't quite sure how to go about making them. I was then looking online and found the exact equipment I needed, but until then, never knew existed. Called a 'Bake N Stuff Cupcake Tin', it can be bought from Harvey Norman stores

Preparation Time: 50 minutes (plus setting time)
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

250g wholemeal self-raising flour
80g margarine
100ml almond milk
40g Truvia sweetener (or 125g caster sugar)
1 egg
1 tbsp cocoa powder
A few drops black food colouring
A few drops green food colouring
2 tsp Peppermint extract
60g icing sugar
1 packet lime jelly
285ml boiling water

Lock the two tins together, and then bake in the oven for fifteen minutes.
Break the packet of jelly into cubes and dissolve in boiling water, before stirring in 285ml cold water.

Once the cupcakes have cooled, remove them from the tin and pour the jelly into the cavities (there will be jelly left over). Put the cupcakes in the fridge and allow the jelly to set.
