My mind is set on trying new Halloween recipes this Fall and that includes making Halloween cupcakes. So, I did my research and found half a dozen wonderful Halloween recipes for cupcake designs of spiders, spooky ghosts, bloody faces, eyeballs, witch-pinned ones and other cupcakes orange and black sprinkles. I realize that I am not into all that yucky bloody stuff nor skulls or graveyard sticks, but I enjoy playful ghosts, funky spiders, pumpkins and that sort of ‘celebrate Halloween’- style of things. So, here’s my line-up of favorite, mostly easy Halloween cupcakes.

Halloween Cupcakes Stencils
Let’s learn how to make creepy cupcakes this Halloween! Having reviewed all those cupcake designs, I’m thinking to stick to using my Halloween Cupcake stencils, and, in particular, the Halloween Cupcake Stencils of Martha Stewart.
Stencils are a fast & practical way to go. I am certainly not an icing queen. I make a mess. And icing often tends to taste too sweet. But, using stencils usually gives good results. The contrast of dark cocoa with white vanilla sugar powder looks great and professional.
