Ingredients

  • 3 cups buttercream frosting, half dyed green and half dyed brown
  • 12 cupcakes
  • 18 mini chocolate-covered doughnuts
  • Chocolate sprinkles and finely shredded coconut, for decorating
  • Black licorice
  • 1 batch royal icing, one-third kept white, one-third dyed black and one-third dyed red
  • 24 brown M&M's
  • 6 wafer ice cream cones
  • Chef notes

    These fun cupcakes use two mini doughnuts stacked on top for extra height. I love to use natural food dyes to make these a little less scary to eat!

    Preparation

    1.

    Working one at a time, spread a small amount of green buttercream all over surface of a cupcake. Top with a doughnut, then use a dab of frosting to act as glue and sandwich with another doughnut. Cover doughnuts with green buttercream. Sprinkle top of frosted doughnuts with chocolate sprinkles for hair.

    2.

    Place 2 licorice pieces on sides of head for neck knobs. Using black and red royal icing, pipe on mouth, bangs and scar.

    3.

    Pipe 2 large dots of white royal frosting for eyes and press in 2 M&M's.
