Halloween Cupcakes

After finding some great ideas for halloween cupcakes at cupcakestakethecake, I decided to jump in and go for it. Here’s what I started with…

And here’s what I ended up with. Not too bad for my first batch of Halloween inspired cupcakes. Spiders were the big hit of the night.

Love your Halloween cupcakes! They were my inspiration for my neighborhood Halloween party. I had to bake and decorate 72 cupcakes, without your photos I would have been lost! Thank you for sharing!!

These are tooo cute, I love the black cat ones!…but perhaps that should be a given since I love cats & Halloween's my favorite holiday, lol.

So I've now sat, read & drooled over your entire blog!…I've never done that before, never read through anyone's whole blog, wow…

You've inspired me so much I can't wait till I can get back to baking again, there's soooo many yummy things from your blog I'm dying to try out!!

I have never before wished to eat a spider, until now. Love the spider cupcakes the most. Will definately make them for the kids at our next halloween. Yes! Halloween is a big thing here in New Zealand as well.

Hi Bakerella!
These spider cupcakes are so fun and I’m planing on baking something like them for my boyfriends birthday, but I was wondering…. How are the liqourice attached? Do you stick it in the frosting or in the cupcake itself?

Thanks xoxo

October 13, 2014 02:49 PM
Bakerella said...

Hi Britta – you’ll need to push them into the cupcake as well. The frosting won’t be enough to hold them.
