Witch Cupcakes ~ Cupcake Tuesday

Cupcake Tuesday at HoosierHomemade.com

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! If you are new here, grab a cup of tea or a glass of milk and enjoy a cupcake!

So, Cupcake Lovers…tell me, have you been enjoying all the Halloween Cupcakes that have been floating around Blogland? I’m having a blast with everything!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! The decorating, the food, the parties, the creativity, and especially all the fun cupcakes!

Did you ever come up with an idea in your head, then when you tried to re-create it, it just didn’t materialize the way you imagined?

Well, Crashing Witchey Poo…started out REAL good in my head…but, well…she crashed…into a haystack :-)

Looks like her flying friends made it into the pumpkin…but she didn’t quite reach her destination!

Wait a minute…you are wondering, what does this have to do with cupcakes? Right?

The haystack (wanna be tree) is made with 3 sizes of cupcakes. I used a jumbo, 2 regular size and 1 mini cupcake, stacked them with a little frosting in between to “glue” them together and frosted the whole stack with brown Buttercream Frosting.

Witchey Poo is made by using the recipe for the Homemade Candy Corn, I colored it black and green, and formed her legs, boots, arms and hands out of the candy. The candy is formed around a lollipop stick, for stability, her cape is made from a fruit roll-up and the Witches Hats, I found at Hobby Lobby.

But of course, I couldn’t stop there…I wanted to give you a little more inspiration…

Mini Witch Cupcake Pops
Make Mini Witch Cupcake Pops for Halloween - recipe from HoosierHomemade.com
  1. Bake, cool and remove paper liner from mini cupcakes.
  2. Place cupcake on lollipop stick, melt the candy and use to secure stick in cupcake, place in fridge to set up.
  3. Mix Buttercream Frosting, tint green and melt in microwave for about 25 seconds, stir until melted.
  4. Dip cupcake into frosting, tap off excess, place in styrofoam to hold the pops and place in fridge.
To Decorate
  1. Cut strips of black licorice for the hair, place candy on for the face, pipe on the mouth with red frosting in your decorator bag (or use candy) and place hat on your Witch!

And the jumbo Witch, well, look for those in Cupcake Chronicles this week! Not a subscriber? Please sign up in my sidebar, I’ll be sharing some fun FREE Printables this week.

    Hi Liz,
