Halloween Cupcake Ideas
Bring your Halloween cupcake ideas to fruition, and bake a variety of treats for your next ghostly gala. Have fun and get creative with frosting and toppings. Bake ghost cupcakes, mummy cupcakes, and spider cupcakes for a “spookalicious” display of yummy treats!
Here are three Halloween cupcake designs that will add a festive touch to your event:
- Ghosts: Make Halloween cupcakes for kids that resemble ghosts and ghouls. Use ingredients such as chocolate cake mix, chocolate frosting, Nutter Butter cookies, white chocolate Hershey kisses, Oreo cookies, and black frosting. Bake the cupcakes with the chocolate cake mix. Once cool, frost the cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Melt the white chocolate Hershey kisses, and dip the Nutter Butter cookies to create a white chocolate coating. Set the white chocolate covered cookie on the frosted top of the cupcake. That’s your ghost! Use the black frosting to create two circles on the ghost cookie for the eyes. Finally, crush the Oreo cookies and sprinkle the crumbs around the ghost cookie to look like dirt.
- Mummies: Looking for scary Halloween cupcakes? Mummy cupcakes are the answer! Gather chocolate cake mix, chocolate frosting, yellow frosting, black frosting, and white fondant frosting. Bake cupcakes with the chocolate cake mix. Once cool, frost the cupcakes with the chocolate frosting. Make mummy eyes with two dots of yellow frosting and small dots of black frosting on top. Slice white fondant frosting into strips that resemble mummy bandages. Place the white fondant strips horizontally on the cupcake. Be sure to keep the eyes visible.
- Spiders: Create Halloween spider cupcakes with white cake mix, dark chocolate or orange frosting, and festive decorations. Top your creepy crawly creations with spider or spiderweb cake picks. Alternatively, create the body of your spider with the cupcake and then use black licorice to form the legs!
- Witches: Create a bewitching Halloween dessert! Witch Halloween cupcakes are a great way to incorporate a classic Halloween symbol into your baking. Decorate the tops of your cupcakes with green icing and add small pieces of candy to create a witch face cupcake, or top them with witch hats made of fondant frosting.
Traditional, freaky, and fun Halloween cupcakes are a wonderful addition to your Halloween event. Serve plain cupcakes and let guests decorate their own! Include Halloween cupcake decorations such sprinkles, mini-marshmallows, and cookies.
