Another great option is vanilla buttercream cakeYou can make “funfetti” by adding sprinkles to the dough.
You will need buttercream frosting and food dye for most of these Halloween cupcake designs. Or you can use store-bought food dye.
We also used royal freeze for a design. And, here are many of the new sprinkles we used:
Corn candy cupcakes
To make cupcakes with candy corn, start by adding a frosting line in the center. You can put this in or use a compensating spoon. Next, fill a shallow bowl with oranges. Dip the cupcakes lightly to cover the orange frosting.
Repeat on each side with the yellow and white sprinkles, taking care not to let the edges blend together.
Blood drip cake
To make mummy cupcakes, you need white coating, sprinkle eyeballs, and a petal blur tip. If you have this set of blur tips you can use #104 or #127 to wrap mummy bandages on top. Then add eyes and you’re done!
These are the ones for all your zombie guests to enjoy. Laugh out loud. To make brain-crusted cupcakes, you need vanilla buttercream frosting dyed pink. Spread a thin layer over the top of the cupcakes.
Then, use the edge of a butter knife to divide the cupcake in half. Pipes zigzag along both sides.
