With halloween right around the corner, I wanted to share with ya’ll 4 easy Halloween cupcake ideas! These were super simple to make I promise! I really don’t like to bake, but I do like to be creative so they were just perfect!
The 4 easy Halloween Cupcakes that I made were a spider, ghost, pumpkin and a mummy! Even if you have zero cupcake decorating skills you can totally do this! This was my first time decorating cupcakes and I think they came out pretty good! But you can be the judge!
I used a chocolate cupcake box mix, because lets be honest, who has time to make homemade cupcakes and decorate the top all during nap time? I am all about convenience over here!
For the icing, I found these pastry bags to make this process even simpler!
For the spider I first coated the cupcake with white icing. Then I used an Oreo as the body. The legs I drew on with black gel icing. I then added candy eyes to the Oreo body using icing to stick them on.
Isn’t he so cute?? Almost too cute to eat!
The pumpkin cupcake was probably the easiest cupcake out of the 4 halloween cupcakes. I used orange icing to pipe around the entire cupcake. For the stem, I stuck in a small piece of a pretzel stick. Then, I added a green vine using green gel icing.
The mummy I decided to do at the last minute and he turned out so adorable! I used white icing to pipe back and forth, and left some empty cupcake spaces to add the candy eyes.
The ghost is not my favorite but hey my kids loved all the icing piled on top! Which is basically all this cupcake is! I piled a big blob of white icing on the top and then used chocolate chips as the eyes and mouth.
I told you they were going to by so easy to make! I hope you enjoyed my 4 easy halloween cupcake ideas!
Maybe next time I will get a bit fancier on my icing skills but my kids loved them just the way that they are!
These would be perfect for a school Halloween Party!
