1 - Jack Skellington Cupcakes
Oh lordy be these Jack Skellington Cupcakes are fun to decorate. They're also easy too and have a simple topping of rolled fondant and cut out licorice! It's so easy to make these Jack Skellington cupcakes look good!
2 -Blood Clot and Brain Cupcakes
I made these blood clot and brain cupcakes a long time ago for Friday the 13th but they are also perfect for Halloween. They also make me smile every time I see them. The brain is actually delicious buttercream tinted grey pink and the blood clots are just strawberry jam!
3 -Werewolf Cupcakes
These cupcakes look hard but honestly once you have the correct piping tip they're so easy as the tip does all of the work! You use m&ms, fruit leather and marshmallows to make these scary howling werewolf cupcakes!
4 -Melting Witch Cupcakes
You can have witch cupcakes sure but what about melting witch cupcakes! These are lime and aniseed flavoured cupcakes that I swear are delicious (and I'm even a licorice lover) and the witches and their outfit are made using edible fondant!
5 -Black Crow Cupcakes
Every year I buy a new batch of black fondant for Halloween because I know that I'll need it. These are black crow cupcakes that look like they're picking at bloodied flesh. Hmm now that I say this out loud I can see why people find my love of Halloween odd...
So tell me Dear Reader, are you making or doing anything special for Halloween this weekend?
