Graveyard Halloween Cupcakes

To make them, bake your favorite cupcake recipe (ehmm, or buy a box mix – that’s what I did) and whip up a batch of your favorite frosting. Typically,  for cupcakes I make a box mix for the cupcakes then whip up my vanilla bean buttercream frosting. It’s my little trick to making quick cupcakes but having them still taste homemade. For these Halloween cupcakes, I just went for the box mix and the can frosting because I wanted to focus my time on decorating them. Graveyard Halloween CupcakesDecorating these cupcakes is so easy and it just takes a little bit of imagination. I used white icing but you could used chocolate too! I crumbled some oreos for the dirt and then used mini Milano cookies for the headstones. They are the perfect size! I even used icing to write “RIP” on a few of the headstones. I also added some candy corn pumpkins (because they are my favorite). And what spooky graveyard is complete without some bloody bones? The bloody bones candy came from Target. They are so fun to decorate. I did each one a little bit different.

You can get creative and add in anything you’d like. How fun would it be to let the little ones help out with the decorating part of the Halloween cupcakes?
