How to Make Witch Halloween Cupcakes
I got the general Halloween cupcake concept from the Food Network – but I didn’t use any of these recipes and they didn’t have a broom.
The beauty of these Halloween cupcakes is that the flavor really doesn’t matter. You can make Halloween cupcakes with any of your favorite cake recipes and cookie recipes (for the brooms and hats). You could even (and I can’t believe I’m saying this) use a mix. You would still get rave reviews.
However, for the curious, I am listing below the exact recipes that I used.

Anyway, Fudge Stripes would definitely not be a bad witch hat option in a pinch.
Why I Made These Halloween Cupcakes
Halloween is your opportunity to be someone or something different. Women, at least those I encounter in St. Louis, typically take the opportunity to be sluts. Do we all secretly want to be sluts? I didn’t think I did. A few years back, I dressed as a bagel for Halloween. Yes, a bagel, complete with sesame seeds. My costume was so big that I could barely fit in the door at the party I was attending, let alone get close enough to talk to someone without yelling. It didn’t even matter that I was there with my boyfriend (now husband). I felt like, well, some day-old bread. The next year I wore something slutty. Single women: Do not be bagels.
1. As my obsession with cupcakes has grown, so has my husband’s interest in and skill at food photography. Most of the pictures on this site have been taken by him. For the shot at the top of this post, he created a special hood for the camera which made any bright light look like a cupcake. The cupcake stars in the picture were created due to the hood not to editing in Photoshop.
