Wicked Witch Cupcakes

Wicked Witch Cupcakes! So fun for a Halloween party!

Ding-dong the witch is dead!  These Wicked Witch Cupcakes are adorable and fabulous for Halloween parties!  Just take some cute straws and black paper and turn any cupcake into the best dessert at the party!  If you really want to get fancy you can draw on some laces or buckles, but I kept mine pretty basic. I love these because there’s no need to fuss with creating a face or the hat, just witch legs! Never thought you’d want to eat a witch legs cupcake did you?

So… which, witch is which?

I used a bright green frosting and added a little minty flavor because I’m a sucker for chocolate-mint anything 🙂  But you can make these with vanilla cupcakes, pumpkin cupcakes, and whatever colored frosting you want.  I just tried to keep mine with Halloween colors.

I was nervous about cutting out the boots but they were so easy to do!  It would make for a fun kid’s decorating party and let them cut out the boots and decorate them with Milkies (wow- I just had a 90’s flashback.  But they show up so well on black paper!).  You could even have all different types of straws for the kids to pick! Each witch could be different and maybe some aren’t dead…just diving into a pool of frosting to eat 🙂

My adorable straws and cupcake liners come from Sweets & Treats Boutique, there stuff is great!  And their cupcake liners never lose their color when you bake them, which is a must for me.

Skeleton Cupcakes I made a few weeks ago!  Pretzels never looked so spooky!

    I would start with the wicked witch cakes and keep going until I had tried each and everyone of your recipes. Because I would just have to keep playing with my new mixer!
