Room moms should take note because these are a fun class party cupcake idea. Kids get really into making these little monsters. And the ingredient list is pretty simple.
Customizing Monster Halloween Cupcakes
Throw a frightfully good Halloween party with fun cupcakes to delight your little monsters. Your Halloween cupcakes can be customized with your preference of color and style, so let’s look at a few of the things you need to make this fun monster come to life.
- Grass Icing Tip, Small star icing tip- The fur on the monster is created using a specific piping tip. Of course, you could opt for a different fur, but why when this look is just so cute?
- Cupcakes – I am a huge fan of chocolate cupcakes, and will usually whip up a batch. But did you know you can ask your local bakery for unfrosted cupcakes? You could pick up a whole slew without frosting in a variety of flavors and let everyone choose their favorite.
- Buttercream Frosting- I have several frosting recipes I love, including this to die for Chocolate Buttercream. But for these, since you are making colored icing, it is probably best to use a vanilla buttercream.
- Food Coloring- Pick whatever colors you want those monsters to be. I loved using a variety of colors for a super fun cupcake tray.
- Candy Eyeballs- Get a variety of sizes to make the monsters even more fun.
- OREOs- You are going to want big and small, and you will want separate the cookie from the icing, and in some cases break the cookies in half too to make the mouths.
Once you have everything in place, let the fun begin. Simply pipe frosting on cupcakes to look like monster’s fur. Decorate each cupcake as desired using candy eyeballs and OREOs, and dig in.
There is nothing better than a dessert that is festive, adorable, and easy! These monster eye cupcakes check all the right boxes, and I love that they are cute.
