spooky ghost cupcakes


Wow! Can you believe Halloween is already next week?! Today, I am sharing another treat that is just in time for Halloween week. {Just in case you missed my other Halloween inspired treats from earlier this month: witches’ hat cookies and creepy cocktail: the dark & spooky}

When it comes to baking, cupcakes are probably my sweet of choice. I love testing out different flavors and combinations and coming up with cute ways to decorate them. I wanted to make at least one Halloween themed cupcake this year — I had some cute cupcake wrappers that I was dying to put to use! I ended up using a store bought mix and frosting because this past weekend was a little chaotic with chores — there was no time for “from scratch” cupcakes!

These cupcakes are not only easy to make, but they are so cute! Almost too cute to eat…almost 🙂
Spooky Ghost Cupcakes
{what you will need}
1 box chocolate cake mix {plus required ingredients on the box}
Sprinkles {I used the sprinkles that came with the frosting & this}
Festive cupcake wrappers
Decorating bag & tip

Prepare cupcakes according to package directions. Once cupcakes are baked, allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Be sure that the cupcakes are completely cool before frosting. Meanwhile, using the black sparkle gel, decorate the marshmallows to look like a ghost; set aside to dry. Begin to frost the cupcakes, add the sprinkles and top with the ghost marshmallow. Makes 24 cupcakes.






Thanks for stopping by and happy Halloween baking!
