Looking for an easy dessert for your Halloween party? Look no further than the cupcake. They’re easy to make, and with some Halloween-themed cupcake holders and a little bit of icing and candy, you can make a creepy and disgusting (looking) treat.
Check out this ghost cupcake I made with just a little bit of chocolate and vanilla icings. All you need to do is freehand a blob. I happened to have some Halloween sprinkles on hand, so the eyes and mouth were crazy simple.
This is also the time of year you can find some gross-looking candy, so put it to good use. I was looking for some gummy body parts, but I happened upon some eye gum balls that I opted to use instead.
I made two different types with the eyes. I used some food coloring to make a nasty green icing and layered that atop a dark chocolate cupcake. Add some sprinkles and the gumball, and you’ve got a cauldron:
I also just really felt like making some edible blood, so these vanilla cupcakes turned out really nice:
The Walking Dead spoiler alert!!! I made these in honor of fallen hero Glen’s death. Poor guy. I don’t know about you, but that hit me hard.
I hope you have fun with your Halloween treats!
