A few weeks ago, I got together with my mother-in-law to make some Halloween themed cupcakes. We used Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes as inspiration to create our scary monsters, and we had so much fun making scary faces and funny little friends.
We bought marshmallows, chocolate chips, a few different kinds of candy, and just mixed and matched to make the different faces. We also made a few spider webs using only some black gel and a toothpick!
Mix and match, be creative. This would be a fun project to do with kids. And it makes me so excited for when Caroline will be old enough to help cook and play in the kitchen. In fact, her new favorite toys are mixing bowls and wooden spoons – she is definitely my daughter :-)
inspired by Martha Stewart, Cupcakes
- 1 batch cupcakes, any flavor
- 1 batch buttercream icing, tinted green, brown, and some white (or really any color you want to use)
- m&m candies
- mini m&m candies
- sour LifeSaver gummies
- Black Licorice
- mini chocolate chips

- Assorted colored Airheads
Frost Cupcakes. Using candies, decorate each to be a different face.
For the spiderwebs, ice each cupake with white icing. Using black decorating gel, carefully draw concentric circles on top. Starting from the center, drag a toothpick to the edge to create the "web." Repeat at intervals all the way around the cupcake
