Monster Cupcakes!

Halloween is the BEST. Besides the fact that an entire new aisle is now dedicated to candy in the grocery store, even better is that I can walk out of the store with 10 different bags and no one will judge me. Because the old lady next to me just walked out with 12.


I seriously had SO much fun trying to find cute candy decor for these little spooky cupcakes! Once a month I come up with easy festive recipes for a recipe board I have set up at a doctor’s office – and this was October’s Halloween treat. I love any and every excuse to go all Martha Stewart on some cupcakes!

So without further ado… please meet my little spooky friends… and enjoy some eye candy :)


Not really sure who he is. But I ate all the candy corn off his head.

And my favorite – the mummy!

So not only are these cupcakes darling – these are so easy to do. For real guys! Especially the mummy. Here’s some step by step intructions below.

1. Using black icing, draw a half oval over the top half of the cupcake and fill in.


 2. Using a flat tipped pastry tip carefully trace lines of frosting from the left side to the right side of the cupcake. Beginning at the very top of the head.

3. Add a couple cute little candy eyes (which you can also find at most hobby stores in the baking section) and you’re done!

So if you’re in a pinch for time – or have to make 30 + cupcakes for your kid’s class party, there’s no shame in a boxed cupcake mix and can of frosting! Especially if you can get your hands on a whole wheat version or lower cal mix from Whole Foods.


But I do want to encourage you to make your own because this way you can control the amount of sugar, fat, and calories you’re feeding your little ones! The cupcake recipe I used is a lightened up version of a chocolate cupcake and vegan frosting. The whole cupcake is dairy free :)

Don’t like chocolate cupcakes?

Try these same designs with my Vegan Vanilla Cupcake recipe or this Lighter Vanilla Cupcake recipe (this is my mom’s very favorite cupcake recipe).

Chocolate Cupcake recipe is slightly adapted from Cooking Light Magazine, love this recipe from them!
