Really frighten your guests into hunger with these delicious skull cupcakes...



  1. Make cupcakes according to the box.

  2. When cupcakes have cooled completely you may begin decorating.

  3. Cut marshmallows in half. Cut chocolate chunks into thirds.

  4. Peel open one end of the muffin paper just enough to fit in one half of a marshmallow for the chin.

  5. Frost the cupcake including the marshmallow with the white frosting. It helps to get a little frosting by the open part of the paper cup so it can be "glued" back around the cake.

  6. On top of where the marshmallow is place 3 to 4 slices of the chocolate chunks. This will make the mouth.

  7. Place one chocolate chip for the nose, narrow part sticking up away from the skeleton's mouth.

  8. Take two "Kisses" and place them upside down, tip pointing into the cake, to make the eyes.

  9. Use the black gel to make a pupil in the eyes (I know skulls don't have eyes but thought it looked cuter that way). If you do not want to buy the black gel just for this you can take a toothpick and use a dab of the white frosting.
  10. You could freeze or refrigerate these if they were not going to be eaten for a while to help set the frosting.
