Halloween Mummy Cupcakes

    40 mins

    I used 2 recipes from this site to create this fun mummy cupcakes for halloween. It's all about decorating with the icing!

    12 people made this

    Serves: 16 

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Make the cupcakes according to the recipe (or use your own cake recipe!).
    2. Prepare the icing according to the recipe (or use your own icing recipe).
    3. Place the icing in an icing bag or a plastic bag with the corner cut off. Pipe the icing onto the cooled cupcakes as pictured, leaving an eye shape in the middle. In the middle of the exposed eye shape on each cupcake, pipe two dots in the middle for the mummy's eyes. Place chocolate chips flat side up in the middle of each dot for pupils.

    I made these yesterday however I used pre-bought vanilla buttercream icing. Mine don't look as professional as the picture (I am an amateur ice-er) so I think I will invest in a proper piping bag for the future. Despite them looking slightly like fluffy clouds they have been a massive hit in the office! Thank you for the idea!  -  29 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    I made them as mini cupcakes and it still worked great. I used butter cream icing, so it ended up looking more 'aged'  -  30 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Super easy to make and came out great. I've made them for a few years now and whenever I need a quick Halloween decoration, these are the ones I make.  -  28 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
