Pinspiration- 10 Halloween Cupcakes

by - Sunday, October 26, 2014

 Halloween welcomes the most creative treats of any holiday, and every year, I become slightly obsessed with the good ideas put on display. You can probably mark a correlation between the kind of evil the holiday is supposed to be about and the pure delicious evils of sugar of all kinds, but since I am not one for being scared, these are my favorite parts of the holiday.

10. A Pumpkin Cupcake- Ok, this decoration is underwhelming if you are going for a big decorating bang, but just imagine this with orange-colored frosting and a stem. It's not a far leaf, and pumpkin-flavored things are totally Halloween. Also, I really hate the weird anti-"basic" thing which seems to me to just be yet another way to make it ok for people to talk shit on women based on entirely artificial and unimportant criteria. You know what is WAY more boring and overdone than pumpkin spice lattes? Talking crap on girls who drink them. It's not an opinion worth having. I'm bored already. On the other hand, I feel like I would be pretty psyched if I got to eat one of these cupcakes, and like I said you could tie the flavor in with slightly more "pumpkiny" decorations.

9. Graveyard cookies- The idea is so simple, and as this blog did, you could probably pull it off all in accessories, but I would also love to see these cupcakes stepped up another level or two. Could you dye the cookie to look more like a gravestone? Pipe in some grass? Add in some zombie hands coming out of the dirt? Still, it works as a great pin, because it inspires all sorts of ideas!

8. Ghost cupcakes-Ack! So cute, but it does make your teeth hurt just from looking at it. I mean, that is a lot of frosting! I was thinking you could have a hershey kiss underneath the frosting to try to keep it clean.

 7. Mummy cakes- I have used this guy before, but it is so damn cute, and might have a much better ratio of frosting to cake than a lot of these do. Great option if you want to try something that isn't quite so treat-y.

6. Finger cakes- We just watched Hocus Pocus tonight (I wonder what the exact years you have to have been born to like this movie are- 83 to 90?) and SJP and Kathy Najimy have a finger fight right at the beginning. I like the spirit of that here.

5. Vampire Cakes- Really, this cake is all about the hairline. Don't you miss when all vampires had hair like the Count? Can someone (PAG) explain the history of this hairstyle to me? The two sharp teeth hanging out the mouth are also adorable. I feel like making a cupcake look this good would be a challenge, but they nailed it.

4. Spider cupcakes- This one has floated around on pinterest a lot, and for good reason. Super cute, and just gross enough to seem a little more appropriate for the holiday. I just love the little googly eyes and the legs coming off the cake.

3. Witch's Brew Cupcakes- This is genius. I love the switch of wrapper to change how the whole thing feels, and I want them to be the sandwich kind of cupcake so the frosting is on the inside. Also, kudos for the pretzel tie-in, because some people (not me, but I know those people exist) who really love their salty with their sweet.

2. AhhHhhh! Real Cupcakes! I thought these were really sweet monsters. Nothing too scary, but I bet you could add arms or jaws to make them even more fun!

1. Skeleton Cupcakes- I have been loving skeletons this year, and I feel like this guy has a lot of wow factor without too much fuss. 15 minutes extra effort? Not exactly scary, but cool. I have done the skeleton thing with cookie cutters (take a cutter of anything and make it a skeleton- I promis you it will be appropriately creepy), but these cupcakes are also adorable.
