Toothy Monster Cupcakes

Here is a simple tutorial for some fun Halloween cupcakes!

I just love their big mouths full of pointy teeth,
and their staring zombie eyes...

Toothy Monster Cupcakes  

I was inspired by these cupcakes on the Wilton site.

What You Will Need:
A batch of cupcakes
Chocolate ganache or melted chocolate fudge frosting
Decorator bags fitted with a round tip (Wilton #12)
A batch of buttercream frosting
Purple and yellow food coloring gel

First, cover the tops of your cupcakes with ganache or melted frosting.
Let them cool and harden.

Color 1/2 cup of the buttercream yellow. Divide the rest into two bowls.
Leave one bowl of buttercream white and color the other bowl of buttercream purple.
Pipe purple buttercream along the top third of the cupcake,
moving back and forth in a zigzag motion.

 Make the teeth by piping a dot, then pulling away quickly to form a point.

 Pipe two large dots of yellow buttercream for the eyes, and press M&M's into the dots.

Watch out, he bites!! 

  I share my recipes & tutorials at these fun link parties.
