  • Cake Mix – I took the easy route, and bought cake mix to make my cupcakes.  Really you can make or purchase any kind or color of cake mix you like.  My family love chocolate, plus it fits the whole back cake cupcake theme nicely.
  • Hershey’ Chocolate – You can choose to purchase the whole candy bar or the miniatures like I did.  Again, this just depends on what you would rather do.
  • Chocolate Sprinkles – You’re going to cover all your cupcakes in black sprinkles.  Be sure you have plenty.
  • Frosting – You can use any flavor you want and use food coloring to make it black, or do it the easy way and use chocolate frosting.  You can make your own, or get your favorite chocolate frosting from the store.
  • 1 bag Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Bag of Candy Corn – Be sure it’s the original Candy Corns.  You’re going to want the yellow color.
  • Black Writing Gel

Halloween Cupcakes Ideas 1024x682 Halloween #Recipes:  Make Black Cat Cupcakes for HalloweenOnce you’re finished mixing your cake mix simply pour your cup cake mix into your prepared muffin pan lined with paper baking cups.  I always fill paper baking cups about halt way full.

Black Cat Cupcake Ideas 1024x733 Halloween #Recipes:  Make Black Cat Cupcakes for HalloweenBake your cupcakes as required by the recipe you are using.  The fun begins.

Frosting Cupcakes 1024x829 Halloween #Recipes:  Make Black Cat Cupcakes for HalloweenAllow your cupcakes to cool before frosting them.  It’s okay if they are a little warm, but you do not want to melt the frosting.  You want the frosting to be room temperature so it can hold the sprinkles, ears, and everything else in place.  Be sure to use heavy frosting, it works better to hold things in place.

Now that we have the cupcakes frosted and ready to decorate let’s get started on my favorite part.  DECORATING, and bringing the Black Cake Cupcakes to life!

Fun ideas for Halloween 1024x733 Halloween #Recipes:  Make Black Cat Cupcakes for HalloweenFirst you are going to cover your cupcake with sprinkcles.  I always make sure I have a new large jar of sprinkles before tackling 24 of theses kitty cat cupcakes.  I guess you could leave them off if you are using chocolate frosting, but in my opinion they look so much better with the sprinkles.

Fun cupcakes 1024x701 Halloween #Recipes:  Make Black Cat Cupcakes for HalloweenTip that jar of sprinkles upside down and shake sprinkles all over the top.  I’m sure you will notice it’s hard to get the sides good.  It’s okay to use the extra spinkles that fall and roll the edges of your cupcake in them.  Be sure to completely cover the cupcake with sprinkesl.  You don’t want to see any of the frosting.

Choose which part of the cupcake you are going to use as the top of the cats head and place an ear inside the frosting.  You might need to push it into the cake part of the cupcake a bit, and if for some reason it will not stay it is always okay to use a little frosting to help.  Once you are done just grab a few sprinkles and cover it up.  I have one ear applied in the above picture.  Then place the 2nd ear about 1/2 away from the 1st ear on either side, or until you think it look right.

Next you will need your candy corn.  This part is easy, just cute the yellow part of your candy corn out.  You will need two for each cupcake.  Now place them where the cats eyes will go.

Grab one of your chocolate chips for the cats nose and place it right in the middle.

Use your black Writing Gel to drawn wiskers coming off the chocllate chip you used as the nose.
