All of these mini cupcakes were made using a basic white cake mix.  I added one cup of pumpkin puree, an extra 1/4 cup of water and a tablespoon of cinnamon sugar to the mix.  This makes a little more than a standard cake mix, but it also makes 72 mini cupcakes.

All of the decorating is extremely easy.


Halloween mini cupcakes

To decorate: Apply icing and purple sprinkles.  Then, hand-write the letters to spell Happy Halloween on white Necco Wafers using a purple food writer marker.


Halloween spider mini cupcakes

To decorate: Apply icing and orange sprinkles.  Cut inch long strips of black licorice laces and place them on the mini cupcake for spider legs.  Top with a black raspberry. To make eyes add 2 spots of red icing using a decorating icing pen.


Skull candy mini cupcakes

To decorate: Apply icing and black sprinkles.  Melt White Candy Melts according to the instructions on the packet.  Pour into a Skulls Candy Mold and leave to set in the refrigerator.  Once set, pop candy out of the mold.  Put a little red icing into the eye sockets using a decorating icing pen.
