7 Scarily Delicious Cupcakes for Kids
Orange is expected, so why not switch things up? White pumpkins are perfect for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. For a final festive touch, add fall leaves in varying sizes.
Ever feel like someone is watching you? You'll feel like that (in a fun way!) with these spooky monster-eye cupcakes. Plus, your kids can help decorate them with black gum balls and candy eyes found at any party store.
Kids love these spooky spider cupcakes! The perfect arachnid ingredients: large black gum balls, green Sixlets and black licorice strings. Just cut eight legs out of the black licorice (leaving two a little longer for the front) and let the kids do the rest. (Warning: Black gum balls and kids can get a little messy!)
Who says ghosts have to be scary? This little apparition is beyond adorable. I love the pop of orange, but classic white is also a cute option.
A BOO-TIFUL TREAT
To make these "Boo!"-embossed cupcakes, pick up some stamps at a local craft store and emboss the fondant by pressing the stamp directly onto the fondant. For a little more pizzazz, put your cupcakes in candy cups or wrappers in coordinating colors.
These pretty pumpkin toppers are simple and easy to make. All you need is a 2-inch decorative fluted cookie cutter and rolled fondant. To make your pumpkin stick, a little bit of water works just like glue.
If you're short on time, you can put together these critter toppers in a flash. Whether your cupcakes are store-bought (we won’t tell), boxed or homemade, just add these on and watch them disappear.
