Werewolf Cupcakes

Filed under: Halloween — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

Hello, Cupcake!: Irresistibly Playful Creations Anyone Can Make at Amazon.comFor the last two years, I’ve made Halloween cupcakes for the party. I’ve gotten lots of votes for them, but I don’t end up winning. This book, Hello, Cupcake! has lots of ideas for cool cupcakes to bring to the party, but I don’t think I’m going that route this year.

Tofu and Cupcakes tried the werewolf recipe from this book last year:

The werewolf got rave reviews…but I can tell you that the ones from the book look 100% better than mine! I should have gone with a stiffer icing (like Swiss meringue buttercream), I used Hershey’s “Perfectly Dark” chocolate buttercream. The book detailed a method of the “fur technique” using a regular ziplock bag as a pastry bag. They even used two-toned frosting on theirs.

Her cupcakes look pretty good:

Considering how steep the competition is every year for the potluck award, maybe I should put a little more effort into my costume instead.

  1. Stacey and I have decided to let you win this year. OK, fine, we have decided that we don’t have a single good idea and after the costume we are feeling too lazy to put any effort into the potluck.

  2. Dan,

    How very “gracious” of you! ;) I’m trying to think of Steampunk Food, but I’m coming up blank right now except for gear and wrench shaped sugar cookies.
