Boo Cupcakes

Last week I had offered to send in cupcakes for the 1st grade Halloween party. Just like everything else it seemed like a good idea a week ago but as Halloween began to creep up panic started to set in. Normally I like to make icing from scratch and I tend to shoot for elaborate cupcake designs, and basically make my life harder.

However, I am getting a little wiser in my old age and I began a search for an easy but impressive looking cupcake. I found this idea on the Betty Crocker website.

Jackpot! Easy to make and so adorable.

Bake the cupcakes as you normally would.

To make the base color one whole can of icing orange. You could use a spatula to ice the cupcake. I used a number 18 Wilton decorating tip to create the base. Either way will work.

Then spoon about 1/3 of the icing into a cup and melt in the microwave for 20 seconds. When the icing is  melted use a toothpick to dip the marshmallow into the melted icing and place on top of the cupcake.

After take a small amount of icing and color it black. Use a number 3 Wilton tip to pipe the eyes and the mouth. You could also use the gel colors that they sell in the baking aisle to create the same effect. Wait for the icing to harden before you put the finishing touches on the ghost.
