Halloween Cupcakes Ideas

There is nothing better than a dessert that is festive, adorable, and easy! These monster eye cupcakes need only neon food coloring and candy monster eyes to look so good! And I love that that are cute little monsters, not scary ones.

Halloween Cupcakes for Kids

Bake a batch of your favorite cupcakes! You can use a cake mix and add ingredients to make it taste homemade, or these Chocolate Cupcakes are delicious!

For the frosting, we like this Buttercream Frosting Recipe, but you can also use your favorite! Then color it with neon food coloring and pipe it on with a star tip. (Here are my favorite bags and tips!) Once the icing was piped on, I added the monster eyes (mini size and the red vein eyeballs)!

Or let your kids go crazy creating their own little monster cupcakes! They turned out so cute- perfect for a Halloween party, to send to school, or to bring to work!
