These Skeleton Cupcakes are easier than they look! So fun for Halloween.
We all know Halloween is coming soon, so I thought I would share a fun idea for cupcakes that a friend emailed me from Woman’s Day.
I hadn’t seen a cupcake so cute in a while, so I knew I had to make them and share with you guys!
Here’s how I did it…
First bake some cupcakes. I used sprinkles on mine because I’m addicted to sprinkles. If you don’t share this addiction you can leave them off.
Next, assemble your supplies…
-white chocolate covered pretzels
-food writer (or black icing)
also reserve a little extra frosting…you’ll see why in a minute.
Cut an inch or so off the stick so it’s not so long.
Flatten your marshmallow slightly
Carefully press your stick into the flattened marshmallow
Now you need to make his bones…
Slide on the pretzels. Here’s where your extra frosting helps. It holds the pretzels in place.
Now stick your arm-less skeleton into your cupcake.
So, he needs some arms…
Cut the top of some extra pretzels off. Do this carefully, otherwise the pretzels break. Trust me. I had to eat A LOT of pretzel casualties.
Now, with some more frosting carefully attach the arms.
Your skeleton has come to life…
Aren’t they adorable??
Now excuse me while I lace up my Shape-Ups and work off some of those pretzel scraps
