Allow your cupcakes to cool completely before completing the next step.

How to make Halloween Monster Cupcakes

Begin by creaming together your buttercream. You do this by mixing butter, icing sugar, and milk mixing it on medium speed until it is creamy and fluffy. Add in your violet food coloring and mix that in until you get the color you want.

You could use mini marshmallows here but I think that it doesn’t give you the dimension that you’d want. Frost each cupcake with a small amount of buttercream and then add your marshmallows on top.

Grab a piping bag and fit it with your Wilton #233 tip. Fill it with your buttercream and then squeeze it until the bottom of the bag is full and no air pockets are visible.

How do I make the frosting look like fur?

To make the buttercream frosting look like fur, place your piping bag at a 90° angle. Squeeze out a bit of frosting and lift it directly upwards.  Continue to do this until all the cake is covered in your fur. This makes the perfect Halloween Monster Cupcake.

So easy!

  3. With an offset spatula, spread some buttercream on top of each cupcake.
  4. Cut your marshmallows into small pieces. Place 2 or 3 on top of each iced cupcake.
  5. Scoop the remaining buttercream into a piping bag and use Wilton tip #233 to frost each cupcake, being sure to cover it completely (the marshmallows are there to create some “hills and valleys”).
