Halloween Cupcake Trio
Prep Time: 60 Mins
Yields: 24 cupcakes
Ingredients:1 box Betty Crocker® Cake Mix + ingredients to prepare mix
1 package of cookie sandwiches
1 can Betty Crocker® Orange Cupcake Icing
1 can Betty Crocker® White Cupcake Icing
1 tube Betty Crocker® Black Decorating Gel
1 tube Betty Crocker® Red Decorating Gel
1 package Betty Crocker® Halloween Cupcake Liners
1 package of candy pumpkins, ½ cup cookie crumbs
Instructions: Prepare and bake cupcakes according to package directions. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before decorating. Once cooled, frost tops of all cupcakes with Betty Crocker® Orange Cupcake Icing. Smooth with a spatula or butter knife.
For the Spider Cupcakes: use Betty Crocker® Black decorating gel to draw a coil covering the top of each frosted cupcake. Drag a toothpick through the coil from the center out, creating a web. Press 1 spider ring onto each "web."
For the Eyeball Cupcakes: Use Betty Crocker® White Cupcake Icing to make small mound of icing on each frosted cupcake. Lightly press the center to make a depression. Fill depression with Betty Crocker® Red Decorating Gel. Use Betty Crocker® Black Decorating Gel to create the pupil in the eye. Use Red decorating gel to draw red squiggly lines radiating around edge of white frosting to resemble veins.
For the Tombstone Cupcakes: use Betty Crocker® Black decorating gel to write an "epitaph" on one end of each cookie. Holding cookie by its edges, press cookie into cupcakes to form "gravestones." Sprinkle cookie crumbs around each "gravestone." Place candy pumpkin to one side.
