Happy Haunted Halloween….

Fall is on the way…and I can not believe Halloween is almost here…so it got me to thinking about this item I purchased a while ago, and still have not used (this sounds like a lot of things I buy) any way …. they look like this and they are made by Wilton….

They are the Wilton Haunted Manor Cupcake Wraps…it came as a kit with some cupcake toppers…but I saw some other toppers that I thought were so so cute and fun…we will get to that soon… so all you do is with these wrappers is assemble them and place them on the outside of cupcake cup…Easy as putting one end into a slit and presto….

Okay…so mix up one of your favorite cupcake recipes….I chose chocolate…cause chocolate is yummy and dark….like Halloween….but I had a late idea (as usual after completing the blog…) and I think that these would really be great if the batter were gray colored….so make white cake and add a drop of black food coloring…this would be awesome and you will see why…

Then bake those bad boys up….I can smell them already….

While the cupcakes are cooling… you are going to get on your computer…. and print out these haunted tombstones…They are printable from Disney…The Haunted Mansion….I got them from the Family Fun site…..they are perfect for Halloween cupcakes…I printed them in grayscale because I like the coloring of the tombstones better that way…

Cut out the the tombstones…..

Then get out some toothpicks and tape…we are going to tape the tooth picks to the back of tombstones…

I like to make cupcake toppers double sided… you don’t have to…but I like not to worry about facing them all one way during presentation…so I just took some scrapbook glue and applied it to the cupcake topper with the toothpick..make sure you get glue on edges….

Then just press on another copy of the same tombstone… press all around for it to stick….and there it is…double sided fun…

So then goes the sweet part….FROSTING….yeah baby…everyone likes different kinds of frosting so again I suggest that you choose your favorite….but make sure it is a white frosting because….this is definitely a cupcake that calls for gray (U.S.) or grey (U.K.) frosting….did you know that…about the spelling of the color…I didn’t…I just found out writing this blog post….wondering which one is the correct spelling….okay so frost with gray frosting and apply sprinkles…and cupcake toppers…

Just a note….I used the metallic coarse silver sugar sprinkles and also sprinkled black sanding sugar…they will even be more amazing if you know how to frost…because if you look closely…I need more practice….Well enjoy…and Happy Halloween… or Happy Harvest…

  1. You are awesome girl! Definitely halloweenie! Would you use the white cake because you could add the black food coloring to make a gray cake? Too bad they don’t make gummy zombies ..
