Halloween Dessert

Cupcakes are the perfect Halloween dessert – they are portion-controlled (though it’s hard to eat only one!), they are a blank canvas to decorate however your heart desires, and they are easier to transport and display than a full cake. That makes them a ghoulishly great treat for your Halloween festivities. 

My kids and love to decorate Halloween cupcakes. We’d set aside a Saturday afternoon and gather around the dining room table, trying to top each other with scary or creative ideas. I’d mix up a bunch of colours of buttercream icing, buy red and green gel icing, throw in pretzels, mini-Oreos, and any other appropriate décor I could find, and off we’d go. Some of them turned out to be masterpieces only a mother could love, but we had a great time!

I can’t wait to hear which of these Halloween cupcake recipes is your favourite! I have made a few of these recipes and I plan to make a few more to make this year extra delicious!
