Eye See YOU Halloween Cupcakes…..
I’ve got my EYE on YOU!
Ok, ok, I know these are a bit ghoulish, but I do think food is a great way to have fun.
These are easy and definitely an eye-stopper…alright, I’ll stop, heehee.
I’ll show you just how quick these are to make and they would be great for an older kids party and fabulous for a teens party. It could be part of their activities to make make the cupcakes. Be sure to freeze the cooked un-frosted cupcakes and let them frost them while frozen. It’s much easier. They will have a eye-poppin time…oohh I couldn’t resist:)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Now we need to prepare our pan.
Find a glass or anything round that is approximately the same size as the bottom of the muffin/cupcake section of the pan.
Trace 12 onto parchment paper and cut out.
Coat the bottom of the cupcake/muffin section with non-stick cooking spray.
Place a round piece of parchment into the bottom and coat the sides and parchment well with non-stick cooking spray.
Mix the cake mix according to directions on the back of the package.
Pour into the cupcake/muffin tin, dividing batter between the 12 cups.
Bake according to directions on the back of the package.
When done, cool, then remove from tins.
Frost the completely cooled cupcakes with the white frosting.
TIP: Freeze the cooled and baked cupcakes before frosting. Frost while frozen, it is much easier.
Color approximately 1/2 – 2/3 cup of the frosting to a deep red.
Place the red frosting into a sandwich sized baggie and clip the corner with a small cut.
Make the veins of the eyes with the red frosting.
Now for the fun.
Center the eyeball candy in the center and that’s it!
Thank you Ashley for all of your help with the Halloween food staging!
