Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE HALLOWEEN! It’s such a fun holiday! I love everything about it. The decorations, the costumes, the candy, the pumpkin carving…

Not the scary movies so much, though.

I saw these fun Mummy Cupcakes originally on Pinterest, but the idea comes from Gina, over at Skinny Taste. She used her low fat chocolate cupcake recipe, but I just made my cupcakes from the ever delicious Betty Crocker Devil’s Food cake mix box.

The ‘Mummy‘ face is super easy to create. So easy, the kiddos could do it theirselves at your Halloween Party!
