I’m not really a fan of Halloween and dressing up. But what I do like is theme baking. So any holiday I have a chance to bake for is fine by me!
I couldn’t decide what I wanted to bake so I spent countless hours (as usual) on Pinterest, liking any recipe I thought could work. After going through way too many, I decided on two types of cupcakes: Frankensteins and brains.
The Frankenstein cupcakes were probably the cutest cupcakes I have ever made. They were chocolate cupcakes with a mint frosting that was bright green. I made eyes with white chocolate and M&M’s, used chocolate sprinkles as the hair and chocolate chips as the bolts in the side of his head. They were pretty time consuming, but looked great in the end!
The brain cupcakes were a lot easier to do. They were a spice cupcake with almond buttercream that was a soft pink colour. The brain was easily done as I just spread icing on top and then piped some squiggly lines on top. Looked pretty gross/creepy, but that was the intention!
Happy Halloween 🙂
