Ingredients for Frankenstein Cupcakes
I'm starting with a boxed chocolate cake mix, but feel free to use your own recipe. This makes about 12-14 large cupcakes.
- 1 box chocolate cake mix (and ingredients such as eggs, oil, and water) and liners
- chocolate frosting
- green fondant (we got ours here) and a rolling pin
- large candy eyes
- black and red icing (we just used premade icing tubes like these - they make it easy!)
- tips for decorating and a piping bag
- 2.75-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter
How to Make Frankenstein Cupcakes
Below is the written and printable tutorial for this fun cupcake decorating idea. Use the comments section below if you have any questions.
- Bake the cupcakes per the package instructions and set aside to cool completely. Once cool, generously frost them with chocolate icing. :)
- Roll out the green fondant to about 1/8th-inch thick (if sticky, use powdered sugar on the rolling pin and surface). Cut into circles using the round cutter and place on top of the frosted cupcakes.
- Use frosting to attach the candy eyes and create hair, mouth, and a scar with icing.
