My mom took a cake decorating class around the time I started elementary school, and from that point forward she sent my sister and me to school with the prettiest birthday and holiday treats.
Our favorite of her frosting creations was her Halloween cupcakes, of which she turned out at least six dozen – two dozen for my class, two dozen for my sister’s class, and two dozen for my dad to take to work – every fall. I started sharing these cupcakes with my friends in kindergarten, and continued sharing them throughout my high school years.
As a wedding shower gift my mom bought me my own set of cake decorating tools. I had little motivation to use them until my son turned two, when I decided to carry on my mom’s Halloween cupcake tradition for my own kiddos.
Here’s the thing about these cupcakes: they look hard to create, but they’re not. They look like they require professional cake decorating tools, but they don’t. I promise, if you have a little time and a little patience, you can make them yourself!
