Easy Skeleton Cupcakes


  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 C. oil
  • 2/3 C. sour cream

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcake liners.
  2. 2. Combine cake mix, eggs, oil, sour cream and milk until smooth.
  3. 3. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake for 15-20 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
  4. 4. Let cool.
  5. 5. Prepare any frosting you want and frost cupcakes, add sprinkles for extra decoration.
  6. 6. Watch video above to see how I put the skeletons together. Press straw into cupcake, then thread a pretzel onto the straw, then Life Saver, pretzel, Life Saver, pretzel. Then draw a face on your marshmallow and press onto the top of the straw! Break a pretzel in two to make arms and wiggle into the top pretzel!
