Easy Boo Halloween Cupcakes
Fall is here, let the Halloween party countdown begin! The ghosts are all a grin with a little scary sweet spin! A big BOO for you and all your trick or treat friends too! Ghost cupcakes, flew off the plate after one white chocolate taste. At the Spooky Stone Cemetery party place, SCARY!!!
Choose your favorite cake mix, I used vanilla cake mix and made a simple butter cream frosting colored with orange food coloring. An extra large round piping tip was used to make ice cream type swirls. I actually craved a vanilla soft serve after dipping these High Tops cupcakes in white chocolate, mmm, yummy. Inspired by Gareth Ghost, Hubert Ghost and Maud Ghost I made frightfully boo faces with an AmeriColor Gourmet Writer (a food coloring marker). There are also many fun color cupcake papers to choose from that make cleanup and individual serving a breeze for you holiday celebration. I made quick cupcake paper covers by cutting strips of paper and taping the back.
Cup cakes made from your favorite cake mix. Frosting (homemade or store bought). White chocolate melting wafers. Orange food coloring. Gourmet food coloring marker for ghost facial expressions.
Frost your cupcakes using a spiral motion with an extra large piping tip. Place your frosted cupcakes in the freezer until chilled, this keeps the frosting from melting while you dip your cupcakes. While your frosted cupcakes are chilling, melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave being careful to use low heat to prevent it from seizing. Stir the chocolate several time while melting. Pour the melted chocolate into a small deep bowl (deep enough to dip the entire top of the cupcake. After your cupcakes are chilled turn each cupcake upside down and dip until covered, hold the cupcake upside down for a few seconds to drip off the excess chocolate. If you prefer a thicker chocolate shell you can even dip the cupcakes in the chocolate a second time. After the chocolate coating has set, draw your favorite spooky ghost expressions.
