Pizzazzerie recently had a Cupcake Skewer Contest, the deadline for which has since past, but designs are still relevant to the Halloween season. The winning cupcake skewers were Black Magic Cupcakes, created by Sweet Cheeks Tasty Treats.
While she did not win the contest, The Decorated Cookie still created bright, festive Halloween cupcakes that impressed me! Below are The Decorated Cookie’s instructions for creating Halloween cupcake skewers but for
ONE Paint stripes on the lollipop sticks with orange and black acrylic craft paint. TWO Add orange polka dot mini cupcake liners that I found at the craft store (after I baked them, so they weren’t greasy). THREE Tint the frosting lime green (Americolor soft gel paste, Electric Green) and pipe it with a frosting bag fitted with a star tip. FOUR Tint and roll out black fondant. I cut out tiny little shapes using the tiny little cutters from a Halloween linzer set I bought (more on that in another post). FIVE The orange polka dot ribbon(also from Michaels) holds the cupcake on the stick.
