I love the holiday season for so many reasons. The time spent with my family, the decorations around my home, and of course all the great treats! Halloween is such a fun time of year for themed delicious baked goods. These Mummy Cupcakes are so easy to make, and they are just the right amount of spooky.

I am not one for super scary movies, or anything that is going to jump out of nowhere to get me to scream. And that was the inspiration in assembling these cupcakes. I wanted to make a homemade treat that had just the right amount of “scare” and also some fun and yum for the kiddos.

Simply pipe on some frosting in a zig zag, then place two M+M’s or candy eyeballs on and that’s it. Toddlers could even do it. Haha These are so fun, and so yummy. I mean mummy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

WHAT KIND OF CUPCAKES SHOULD I USE?

You can use store-bought cupcakes or bake your own! If you want to bake your own cupcakes make sure to let them cool completely before decorating, so the frosting doesn’t melt away.

 

CAN I USE ANOTHER KIND OF CUPCAKE FLAVOR FOR THE BASE?

Yes! You can absolutely use any kind of cupcakes you’d like!

 

WHAT TOPPINGS SHOULD I USE?

Decorate these with M&M candies, Skittles or candy eyeballs. I found my candy eyeballs at Walmart.
