Cupcakes and Werewolf go hand and hand for Halloween! We’re taking two cupcakes and turning them into this cute little Werewolf Cupcakes!
When we got married and moved to Jacksonville I was on a mission to become the perfect housewife. I was learning how to cook, teaching myself to get comfortable in the kitchen and I was also bored out of my mind!
I needed something to do. I didn’t have a job yet, Thomas was on base all day for work (obviously) and I had hours and hours to myself. There is only so much cleaning and cooking one can do alone without going insane.
So, I signed up for some cake decorating classes at one of the craft stores in town.
One of the things they taught us in the class was how to make puppy cakes out of two cupcakes.
I was so excited to learn how to make these little puppy cakes. haha You would have thoughts that I had decorated a 6 layer cake. haha
I spent the next few days perfecting my new cake decorating skill. I’m sure Thomas got super tired of eating little puppy cupcakes after a few days.
However, those puppy cupcake making skills have come in handy for bake sales. Let me tell you something. I’ve done quite a few charity fundraisers over the past years and when I make puppy cupcakes like this they always sell like hot cakes!
People go crazy over them.
So when it came time to work on Halloween treats, I thought about those little pup cakes and decided to turn one into a werewolf!
So basically you’re just going to need 2 un-frosted cupcakes, frosting and a few candies for eyes.
I KNOW it’s a lot of frosting, but let’s be honest here. You know you don’t have to eat all of that frosting and I know that is you’re sharing this little cake with people that it’s just fine. haha
So let’s get started.
First you’re going to need 2 cupcakes.
Make them yourself from scratch, use a box mix or grab them from your local bakery. Either way is totally fine.
If you need a chocolate cupcake recipe, I suggest the base recipe for my German Chocolate Cupcakes.
Next, you’re going to need chocolate frosting.
Again, homemade or canned. Either way, it’ll do perfectly.
Fill a piping bag, fitted with a M1 large star tip,with chocolate frosting. Remove the cupcake liner and pipe a little frosting onto the top of each cupcake. Flip them upside down and press them into a plate to “glue” them in place.
Now, pipe big stars down the center of the cupcakes. Think of this as the “backbone.”
Take the frosting and pipe big stars all over the cupcakes to create the werewolf cupcake body.
Then add two little ears on one end by piping two giant stars.
Add 2 red M&M candies for eyes.
Tint some of the chocolate frosting black and use a toothpick to add a little nose and pupils to the eyes.
Lastly, add a little mouth was some red icing and stick two almond slivers in for teeth and you’re done!
Oh well, I suppose that you can also add a little tail like this if you like but I don’t know if it’s very noticeable.
Now that’s it! You’ve got a “creepy” Werewolf Cupcake for Halloween!
Isn’t he just the cutest………I mean scariest! haha
