Slime Cakes - Recipe.

These cake weren't supposed to look like I had poured slime all over them - but they do! Don't worry they taste yummy so it doesn't matter.


2oz of butter
2 cups of caster sugar
2 beaten eggs
1 cup of milk
2/3 cups of self-raising flour.
1tsp of Vanilla extract.

First of all I creamed the butter and sugar together then added the 2 beaten eggs with the teaspoon of Vanilla flavouring.
Next up I added the flour and milk in parts to create a thick mixture and placed it evenly into cupcake papers.
Bake for 10-15 mins on 180*c.

Once left to cool down I made the slimey looking icing glaze.


1 cup of icing sugar
1 tbs of milk
2 tsp green colouring
1/2 tsp on vanilla extract.

First up I place the milk in a container, then added the Vanilla flavour. After this I kept adding small amount of icing and stirring until the sugar had dissolved.
Once all the sugar was dissolved I added the green food colouring until it looked bright enough.

As this glaze sets quickly I immediately placed over the top of the cooled down cakes, as it was wet it ran a little - making it look like slime! I added edible silver balls to jazz it up a little.

I've just had one and they taste great!

Don't forget tomorrow is giveaway day!


  1. yum yum yum, I love cupcakes x

  2. mmm they look great..why do all british cup cakes mostly have sugar icing?

  3. Oh man I love baking! British cupcakes mostly have sugar icing.. just.. because! haha. These look lovely.

    Technically i'm from Gloucestershire, but I say Bristol as more people know where that is. Devon must be such a cool place to live, you're lucky!! And I heart tea too, especially Tea Pigs tea, check them out, heaven!!

  4. lovely! the 'slime' simply adds charm x

  5. Haha, I love the name 'Slime Cakes'. My glace icing used to turn out really runny when I first started making fairy cakes but now I just add a crapload of icing sugar to make it behave.

    They look so yummy, I'm craving now!

  6. reminds me of when I tried to make cream cheese icing with fatfree cream cheese (upon insistence of bf...)

    your cupcakes look delish though.

  7. Ha slime cakes - love it! They look rather appealing actually :)

  8. mmmm...they look so yummy and make me hungry (:

  9. love your blog! It is so unique and I am definitely following you now!

    slime cakes ... lol

  10. The idea of a slime cupcake really appeals to me, such a great idea x

  11. Ha, I love 'em. I don't think I'd be able to get a better slime-looking frosting if I tried!

    My brother's birthday is coming up; perhaps I shall make these.
