Halloween Cupcakes

This past weekend I made some delicious and fun Halloween cupcakes for our neighborhood block party. (More to come on that later!) We used them for our cupcake walk so I wanted to create a variety of cupcakes that the children could pick from for their prize. I think they were a success because all the kids took their time to choose their favorite decorated cupcake.

My main decorating ingredients were mini M&M's and tubed black gel icing. I think I used those two items on almost every cupcake. I used a tub of cream cheese flavored icing, but I added food coloring to make green and orange icing for some of the cupcakes.

Mummies- I made mummies by piping "wraps" with my white tubed icing. In the middle of the wrapping I added yellow M&M's and piped black gel in the center of the M&M's for eyes.

Jack-o-Lanterns- I made Jack-O-Lanterns with M&M eyes and a leaf. Then I piped a jack-o-lantern face with the black gel icing.

Frankenstein- To make the Frankenstein cupcakes I made squiggly hair and a mouth with the black gel.

Spiders- The Spider cupcakes were made with an oreo, M&M's, and black gel icing for the legs.

Monster- A favorite cupcake was the monster with many eyes. I used red or green M&M eyes with black gel in the middle.

Witch- I also made a Witch's hat cupcake to match my daughter's costume. It had an Oreo cookie with a Hershey kiss on top and black icing around the Hershey kiss.

Ghosts- To make simple ghosts I left the cupcakes white and added eyes.

You can be so creative when making Halloween cupcakes, and I can't wait to create more!


  1. This is such a GREAT idea! I love the spider the best I think but I know my son would be ALL over the monster one. Saw this at Live Laugh Linky Thursday! Don't you just love link up parties? I am having my first one ever tomorrow called Family Fridays! :/ I am a bit nervous! Maybe you can stop by and share a few links? I hope so! I will be pinning this right now!

  2. I know! The kids loved the monster ones..and to tell you the truth, they were probably the easiest ones to make. I'll make to sure to stop by tomorrow for your linky party :)
