In case you forgot — it’s Halloween week!!
My friend Shelly and I are teaming up to bring you a whole week’s worth of Halloween inspiration. We both LOVE Halloween and get so inspired at this time of year!!
Honestly, we contemplated doing more posts this week than we are already doing…but it’s just not humanly possible. Kids need things and people expect dinner food, and babies get poopy diapers.
(Incidentally, Lucy has become an expert at escaping during diaper changes. I’m sure you can imagine how that’s working out for me)
Anyways — one of my FAVORITE kinds of treats are the kind that put a tiny spin on an existing classic.
These little guys are the perfect example!!
I’ve always loved cupcake cones (if you’re not familiar, you bake cake batter in an ice cream cone and frost it to look like ice cream) and I realized that a soft serve type swirl was the perfect shape for a ghost!!
Just add two black sugar pearls (or use frosting) and a bit of black frosting for a mouth and you’re set.
Super duper simple, but I think they are SO cute and fun!!
If you REALLY felt like a super mom (or dad…are you guys out there?) you could divide your frosting into three colors and pipe candy corns too!!
I love them both ways.
I am assuming you know how to make ice cream cone cupcakes – just use your favorite cupcake batter (in this case I used a cake mix) and fill flat bottomed cones that have been set in a muffin tin 2/3 full.
Bake like normal and let cool.
Pipe frosting on top. The frosting recipe I used for these guys is HERE.
That’s it!! Super duper fun and relatively inexpensive.
Don’t forget — we’ll be having a link up Friday, so have your Halloween recipes ready!!
Enjoy and have a great Tuesday!!
