Halloween is Monday and we are just gearing up in our house. I am all about simple, and easy when it comes to treats for the kids. There are so many Simple Halloween Kids Treats there is no need to go crazy. These Simple Monster Cupcakes are right there on the list of easy to make and oh so cute! You have to make these at least once.
You will need
- Wilton Grass Icing Tip
- Cupcakes (I used our Homemade Cake Mix )
- Buttercream Frosting
- Food Coloring
- Candy Eyeballs
As soon as the cupcakes are cool mix your frosting with the food coloring of your choice. I mixed about 1 cup of icing with 5-7 drops of food coloring to get the colors I wanted.
Then put your grass icing tip in a piping bag. I just used a freezer quart sized Ziploc bag with the tip of a corner cut off.
Once the tip is in your bag fill it with icing and pipe the “fur” onto your monsters. This tip is very easy to use and will only take you a minute to get the hang of it. It is best to start around the outside and work your way in.
When you are done icing add the candy eyeballs of your choice. Some on my monsters had 1 eye…some had 3. That is what made it fun.
The best part is because you use the cupcake recipe if your choice, you can totally use gluten free cake, and dairy free icing. You can make these with whatever works best for your family!
