Speaking of parties, why not let your Halloween spirit carry on over to dessert? The next time you whip up a batch of cupcakes, turn them into creepy, scary and delicious monster treats that will impress your guests and send chills down their spine at the same time. Here are 10 killer cupcakes to get you in the Halloween spirit.
2. Monster Claw Cupcakes: These paw-some cupcakes are the perfect blend of creepy and cute for those of us that prefer the tamer side of Halloween. Use a grass pastry tip to give them an extra furry look. (via Bakingdom)
3. Simple Monster Cupcakes: It doesn’t get any easier than this. The chocolate-dipped Oreo and candy eye make for a completely edible topper, which is delicious and ensures that nothing goes to waste. (via Confessions of a Cookbook Queen)
6. Fondant Monster Cupcakes: If you ever wanted to try your hand at fondant but were too intimidated, this is the project for you — there’s no wrong way to do it. Just go crazy with it — they are monsters, after all. (via Juniper Cakery)
7. Toothy Monster Cupcakes: Topped with chocolate ganache and piped with thick buttercream icing, these toothy beauties are so frightening they’re actually cute. Not too cute eat though! (via Bird on a Cake)
