Halloween Cupcakes

The breezy days and crisp nights means two things for certain: Fall is finally here to stay, and Halloween is just around the corner! To celebrate the season I made Halloween cupcakes today using decorating inspiration from the Wilton website. For any amateur cakers out there, I highly recommend Wilton as a great place for tips, recipes, discussion boards and general inspiration for your caking endeavors. They have a huge catalog filled with everything you could possibly need for baking and caking.

Today I used modified Wilton recipes for both yellow cake and chocolate cake, a classic butter cream icing recipe, several Wilton dyes and various designs to make mummy cupcakes, pumpkin cupcakes, spider cupcakes and worm cupcakes. I used several tips and techniques to create different textures, shapes and designs. The worm cupcakes were a great way to let kids get involved: two of my favorite girls, Sammy and Jess, had a blast using crushed Oreos and Gummy worm candies to decorate these cupcakes.

Pumpkins, Mummies, Earthworms and Spiders!
