OH NO! All Hallows’ Eve is only a few days away—and you haven’t made any holiday cupcakes yet!! Call it the NIGHTMARE BEFORE HALLOWEEN!!!!!
But have no fear! We’re here to save you with a fast Halloween project that’ll please as many trick-or-treaters as you need it too.
I mean, what’s more Halloweeny than ghosts!
These chilly phantoms are a breeze to make. Here’s the speedy recipe:
With a paring knife, cut a cone-shaped hole into the top of a CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE. (Put the small cut-out piece of cake aside. You’ll need it later.)
Cover the cupcake in CHOCOLATE FROSTING, leaving the cone-shaped hole unfrosted. Then roll the cupcake in a shallow bowl full of CHOCOLATE COOKIE CRUMBS.
Place a 1 1/2 inch ICE CREAM BALL into the cone-shaped hole. Then put the cone-shaped piece of cake on top, flat side down.
Pipe a circle of WHIPPED TOPPING around the base of the cone cake. Pipe a smaller circle on top of the ice cream.
Then, to make the peaked ghost’s head, pipe a third layer of whipped topping (using a squeeze-release-pull motion).
Insert two matching CANDIES for eyes.
And there you have it: a quick concoction that really captures the spooky spirit of the holiday!!
Feel free to freeze or keep cool as you wish.
Happy Trick or Treating,
Alan and Karen
