I am a firm believer that mini cupcakes are the BEST. You can’t eat just one, and if you can then you have superhuman mental strength that I covet.
I also adore Halloween. It’s my absolute favorite holiday and the MOST awesome time to bake. Yep, I am even putting it before Christmas. As soon as Labor Day is over, Halloween bakes are fair game in my hocus pocus book.
Mini Ghost Cupcakes are spooky cute, beyond easy, and a Halloween MUST cupcake. Plus they're mini cupcakes, so they are the black cat’s meow. Meow!
For the ghost’s eyes and mouth, you have two choices. Your first choice is to color a bit of your vanilla buttercream, black with black food color, and using a pastry bag fitted with a no.3 decorating tip or with the tip cut off, you pipe three dots onto your ghosts. Alternatively, you can also use a sandwich bag with the tip cut off.
Your second option for the ghost's eyes and mouth is to use royal icing transfers. I tend to have black royal icing left when I am making Royal Icing Eyes, so I make a few royal icing black dots for other projects; this being one of them.
Get in the Halloween spirit with Mini Ghost Cupcakes. They’re hauntingly delicious and really cute too!
