Cupcakes for Pick-y Eaters
Chocolate fudge cupcakes with super Chocolate frosting. Doesn’t that sound good? Uh, ya! You caught me. They really aren’t for picky eaters. I just wanted to do a play on words.
However, they are yummy and so so adorable and easy. You could create these pics weeks ahead. All you have to do is stick them in some cupcakes. Homemade or store bought, I don’t judge. But these, ya gotta make homemade.
They really are cute.
I used the Cricut Mini Monsters Cartridge to cut the Frog (and layers) at 1.9 inches, Jack O’Lantern (and Layers) at 2.5 inches, Grave (and Layers) at 2.5 inches, Ghost at 2.5 inches, Spider at 1.6 inches.
Aren’t they fun? Each monster is glued onto a toothpick and then just inserted into a cupcake. You can have any kind of cupcake and really rock your party.
Make them all, or make a single favorite character multiple times. Your guests will love them!
For each creature, I added a mouth if they needed it and wiggle eyes. I also added rosy cheeks to each one. You can do this with blush or chalk. I also used a white gel pen to give the cheeks highlights, which really adds to their fun characters.
Have yourself a jolly good time at your Halloween party!
