As this is one of the SWEETEST days of the year, I encourage all of you to treat responsibly.
This year, instead of buying and handing out mass amounts of candy, I decided to bake cupcakes for all of the ghouls and goblins that knock on my door.
Do you want to bake cupcakes for your guests? You better decorate them festively!
Use your favorite vanilla/white cake batter for these festive treats. Seperate the batter into 3 portions, and add food coloring to each. I used bright orange, purple, and black, but you are free to choose any others.
Scoop tablespoons of the first color into your greased cupcake pan. Add a spoonful of the next color to each cupcake, and repeat this step with the last color. With a toothpick, swirl the batter in the cupcake pan.
Bake as normal, and allow to cool before decorating.
Use your favorite icing recipe; I used a simple vanilla buttercream. Divide the icing into three portions, and add food coloring, as you did with the cupcakes.
Add spoonfuls of the icing to your decorating bag, or ziploc bag, alternating between colors. Swirl the icing around the top of the cupcake. I added a few drops of water to the icing, which made the colors merge together. Once iced, put your cupcakes in the fridge for a few minutes to let the icing set.
I topped mine with a few pieces of candy corn, to add a bit of extra Halloween fun. Pass these out to your trick or treaters, and you’ll be sure to named “best house this year!”
