Skeleton Cupcakes

These cupcakes were the most popular at my nephew's birthday party last weekend!


  • Favorite Cake mix
  • Dark Frosting (chocolate or black)
  • White icing to pipe on
  • Black icing
  • Mini Marshmallows



Make Cupcakes according to mix directions. Let cool.

Frost the tops of each cupcake with the chocolate or some other dark frosting.

Take one mini marshmallow and add two eyes with the black icing and and one drop on the back to help it stick to the cupcake. Place Marshmallow on the cupcake.

With the white icing, pipe on the body of the skeleton, a straight or slightly curved line that comes down from the head (marshmallow). Two lines near the head for arms two lines in the middle for the chest and two at the bottom for the legs.

Remember when doing the arms and legs that we have joints, play around with the positions you put the skeletons into.
