I made some fun Halloween cupcakes with my girls yesterday and they turned out to be really cute.
The kids absolutely loved them so I wanted to share the techniques with you. These really are incredibly simple and I made these as cupcakes but brownies would also work.
The recipes I used are linked above.
Once your brownies or cupcakes are cooled and you have the frosting ready you can start with these adorable Mummy cupcakes:
I used a Wilton tip and just drizzled the buttercream in zip zags accross the cupcake. Once that was finished, I added (2) of the little Wilton eyeballs. These are my favorites as I just love those eyeballs!
You can find them at Target, Walmart or any craft store in the baking aisles.
If you don’t have Wilton tips for cupcakes, put the frosting in a Ziploc bag and cut the corner off and you should still be able to zip zag. Just be careful not to cut too much of the tip off.
And Viola! An adorable little mummy cupcake!
And the next one is a spider web cupcake. You can do this with cookies and any color you like.
I used orange and black but white and black or purple and black or green would look great.
I took the same buttercream frosting and added it to a small bowl. I dripped one drop of red food color to 3 drops of yellow food color until I got the shade of orange I was happy with.
I frosted the cupcake and then used a small tube of black frosting gel to draw three circles. The trick is three cirlces and it looks best if you have a thicker line as you see above, my circles are fairly thick.
Once you have your three circles drawn, take a toothpick or I used a skewer and just draw a straight line down starting from your innermost circle. This makes the circles turn into a super easy spiderweb!
And here is what they will look like:
I got a huge pack of spider rings at Walmart for $.97. I just soaked those in dish soap and hot water and rinsed well and then popped them right on top!
These are so adorable! We passed these out to the neighbors last night and they brought a smile to everyone’s face so I hope you try these out.
They really are incredibly simple.
