Homemade Halloween Cupcakes
Halloween can be a great time to get creative with your cupcake baking. Whether you are planning for a children's party or one for grown-ups, there are plenty of options to create the most fun and the most unique Halloween cupcakes around. They are sure to be a scream with the guests. I apologize for that small pun, but the truth is, creative cupcakes for Halloween events can be quite popular.
Recipes for Halloween Cupcakes
Of course, the right cupcakes for this holiday all starts with the batter. You have plenty of options, so do not be afraid to branch out. If you would like to keep it simple, consider using plain yellow or white cake batter and adding food coloring to make the cakes orange. Other, more creepy homemade halloween cupcake ideas include adding cherry or cream cheese filling to a chocolate cupcake.
Other options which work well include pumpkin bread cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, which will bring about the taste of Halloween, or you could use red velvet cake for a fun look.
If you intend to do a great deal with the decorations, you may want to stick with plain white, yellow, or chocolate cake so that the taste will not be overwhelming to your guests.
Halloween Cupcake Decorating Ideas
When it comes to Halloween cupcake decorating, there is no limit to the creativity you can have. If you think of something, do not feel tied down, but here are some thoughts to get you started. You may want to put your own spin on them.
Choose white frosting, and then crumble chocolate cookies on top. Add a gummy worm or a small plastic hand as if it were coming up from the dirt created from the cookie crumbles. Frost the cupcakes with orange icing, and then use a piping bag to write words like "Boo" or "Scary" on top.
For even more creative Halloween desserts, use pretzel sticks and chocolate covered cherries to create a spider atop a white frosted cupcake. Frost the cakes green and then use piped black icing to make the tops look like they are covered with spider webs. You can even use candies and icing to create the look of creepy eyeballs atop the cakes.
Halloween is a fun and frightful time of the year. Cupcakes with a Halloween theme can be a great way to be creative. Your guests will enjoy the whimsical designs, and the tasty treats as well.
