  9. Amy

    This year I will be making a pumpkin and jack-o-lantern cupcake cake! I love all the options of cupcakes this time of year.

  10. Ashley

    I like doing a candy corn themed cupcake where you use a dollup of orange frosting, then a dollup of yellow, and then a white tip. They’re cute, easy, and make a really cute display.

  11. Georgianna

    I love decorating cupcakes like turkeys and pumpkins! I adore using the candy corn.. and eating most of it in the process :)

  12. Whitney McMillin

    I will decorate my cupcakes with fat strips of white frosting, criss crossing over the cake with eyes peeking out from under! Mummy cupcakes are the best!

  13. Ashley

    I really want to try the spiderweb design on my cupcakes this year…you know the ones where you drag the toothpick across the lines of frosting to create that unique look? I think I’d make spiders to sit on top too out of chocolate and m&ms :]

  14. Margaret

    I’m going to make cupcake ghosts using marshmallows and maybe even tombstone cuppies with the names of each of my Halloween party guests! :)


  15. Jaxy

    This is adorable.

    I more so go with flavor over look for my cupcakes. For this reason I’m always on the lookout for pretty papers and cute little toppers.

  16. Kim

    i would decorate my cupcakes with black frosting and a huge spiderweb across the cupcakes. I would then make a spider using fondant/cupcake balls to create the body/legs. I would put candy corn and a little white chocolate skull underneath the spider web and place the big spider on top of it all for a spooky treat

  17. Cassie L

    I like to make scary cupcakes for Halloween with the novelty candies sold for the season (eyeballs, worms, brains etc.) Green, purple, and black are my favorite colors for them!

  18. Lisa

    I like to cover them in orange buttercream then let the kids get creative with sprinkles and writing gel and make their own jack-o-lantern cupcakes

  19. Sharee Roggen

    We are having a Halloween party so I will have a bit of everything on my cupcakes… Spiders, monsters, candy corn oh my.

  20. Beckster

    I like to make ghosts. I put a marshmallow on top of frosting, roll out some white fondant and drape it over the marshmallow to create my ghost body. Then I use food markers to draw the face!

  21. Katrina

    I love frosting them orange, drawing a black spider web on it and adding a plastic spider ring in the center!

  22. Amanda M.

    I love doing devil’s food cupcakes with orange colored buttercream frosting, topped with chocolate sprinkles and a candy corn or two.

  23. Judy R

    I am making devil’s food cupcakes and decorating them with skulls, bloodshot eyes and bones for my grandchildren’s Halloween party.

  24. Kelly

    What a cool kit! I’m thinking about making pumpkin cupcakes with skulls and mummies this year.

  25. Stephenie

    I make monster cupcakes with eyeball gumballs!


    I am going to make Orange coloured carrot sponge cupcakes and decorate them as pumpkins with green and orange icing, will make them healthy with the carrot and ruin it all on the icing sugar!

  27. Terri

    Spiderweb cupcakes with cute little big eyed buttercream spiders sitting on top!

  28. Vickie Roberts

    I will be making a red velvet cupcake with an ewey gooey eyeball on the top!! Edible of course.

  29. Cassie

    I bake from scratch blood shot eye ball cookies and then but them on top of cupcakes that i fill with red icing / strawberry jam depending on the age group im baking for. They are a tradition that I grew up baking with my mom every year and now I do them with my own daughter!

  30. kristen

    I like making chocolate cupcakes with green pistachio pudding for the filling, top with a smooth chocolate icing and chocolate sprinkles. cut up black pipe cleaners into 8 legs and bend into shape and stick in the cupcake, then add red hots for the eyes. You’ll have a scary gut filled spider cupcake :)

  31. Krystal Lynn

    I like making Halloween cupcakes with a witchy theme. I love all the magical, witchy stuff. Lots of purple, green, orange and little black cauldron cakes. =)

  32. Marci

    My boys are into skulls and zombies, so guess what we will be making for Halloween classroom parties? This kit would only make them better. :-)

  33. Jackie Roberts

    I would love to do a mini graveyard cupcake. Chocolate or red velvet, maybe some gooey filling. And the top would be a chocolate and cookie crumbles graveyard with a dark chocolate tombstone and either a white chocolate or almond bark skeleton climbing out. (little head, arms, legs, etc… made out of a candy mold)

  34. Jennifer

    I will have my Halloween cupcakes black with spider webs, and the remaining cupcakes to have vibrant orange frosting.

  35. Ashley Ford

    I have had a “spider” theme in my kitchen for Halloween the past few years – so I like making spider-webbed cupcakes and others that look like big purple and black spiders (using licorice as legs or Crate & Barrel’s spider leg cupcake stands)! I also like making mummies!

  36. Ellen Burzynski

    I decorate my cupcakes with skeletons, pumpkins, spiders and graveyards –

    Graveyards – Color each cupcake with orange icing…sprinkle ground up orea cookie to look like dirt – top with nutter butter cookie (with RIP written on it) and put a candy corn pumpkin on it…

    Spiders – color each cupcake with orange icing…inscribe a web with black icing. Put a fake spider ring in the center.

    Skeleton – Color each cupcake with orange icing – top with ground up oreo…and lay a small plastic skeleton on top. I buy these at the local halloween store.

    Picture upon request!

    Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday and I love to get creative with me food. Would LOVE to win this!

  37. Cupcakes by CC

    For Halloween I am trying several different designs. I have already made a batch of pumpkin cupcakes (vanilla cake with orange & green butter cream icing). I have made some using the pumpkin candy on top as well. Today I am making monster cupcakes: one eyed monster & orange alien. I want to make some spider cupcakes and maybe something really spooky (not sure what yet).

  38. Nykole Lizotte

    I would make red velvet cupcakes and make some graveyard cupcakes, some with gummy worms coming out of it. etc.

  39. Shanna sanders

    Willam sanoma leaf shaped crust cutters and fall colored fondant make a great easy fall cupcake topper!

  40. Tracey

    My six year old Grandaughter and I like to use fall and halloween papers.We decorate with sprinkles,candy,colored frosting,spray on colors,crumbled cookies,candy corn is her fav!She pretty much is in charge of decorating! And has a great imagination!But for me its all about the time we spend together!Happy Fall!

  41. Lindsey

    I want to try making sugar glass and making cupcake eyeballs w/ sugar glass stuck in it *ouch* and some piping gel blood :) or a plastic fork stuck in them :)

  42. Karen

    I’d be doing an array of designs to convey all aspects of the fall season and of course Halloween. Anything goulishly fun for Halloween is my favorite way to decorate cupcakes. Spiderwebs, pumpkins, ghosts, bats and haunted houses. And of course let’s not forget, “BOO”… You name it, I’ll find a way to decorate it.

  43. Lindsay

    I’m ecited to try new cupcakes this fall! I’ve seen Smores cupcakes, pumpkin cupcakes, and many other new recipes. For the pumpkin cupcakes, it only makes sense to ice them in green and add candy pumpkins for decorations. The picture above is a great idea and I would love to have new tips to make the grass look more accurate!

  44. Erin

    I love making pumpkin/apple spice cupcakes this time of year with cream cheese frosting and caramel on top. Mmmmmmmmmm And I stick some candy corn on top for looks :)

  45. Connie

    You can’t have Halloween without skulls! Skulls can be scary, cute, funny, make him look like a pirate… the theme can be endless! Thank you so much for the contest and this AWESOME site!

  46. Latonya R

    I would like to find a way to put a candy witch or some kind of witch model on top of my cupcakes!

  47. Vanessa Talamantes

    Halloween is my favorite holiday! I will be doing pumpkins, I love to color sugar because I think it makes it look really pretty. I will also ve making spider web because they are simple and look great. Maybe som creepy ones like missing fingers, I love the macabre and creepy!

  48. Sara Westhead

    It’s all fall here with oranges, yellows and browns. Candy corn is a must!

  49. jenn m

    we have a new favorite, fill with homemade apple pie filling and top with caramel buttercream, oh soooo good!

  50. DeDe

    I like to put a red filling like raspberry or strawberry so it’s red a gooey when you bite into it.

  51. leneatiengo

    I want to decorate regular-looking cupcakes with worm candy (such as gummy worms) stuck in them, worms sticking out is a scary idea for Halloween!

  52. Carrie

    I love those pumpkin path cupcakes in the picture! I would like to make monster cupcakes with Frankenstein, Dracula, Swamp Thing, and more! I think that would be a lot of fun!

  53. Gianna Patton

    There’s no going wrong with spider-themed cupcakes – *ooh* and I love mummy and zombie cupcakes… I’m all about those yummy, gummy, creepy eyeballs! =)


  54. Lauren

  55. Jaime S

    I like making leaves from candy molds, so mine will be chocolate icing with colorful leaves on them.

  56. Marla

    I like to decorate all kinds of ways. It just depends on who the cupcakes are for! I especially like doing ghosts with frosting!

  57. Marilyn Nielson

    This year i tried something new… I layered my batter after dying orange and yellow to appear like candy corn after baked. They turned out very beautiful and then frosted with a white/cream cheese buttercream and added a piece of candy corn on top… Fun times!!! My 2 year old decided as well that candy corn is her new favorite treat, good thing they only have it around Halloween!!!!

  58. Darla

    I usually am not very creative but they always taste great! LOL This is SO cute! I go for more of the cake & gummie worms thing but maybe i can try harder this year. Thank you for the chance!

  60. Julie Grimberg

  61. Kim T.

    I made cupcakes for a pumpkin themed baby shower and used chocolate icing (dirt), leaf sprinkles, and a pumpkin candy in the middle to make it look like a pumpkin patch :)

  62. Amanda Bellow

    We LOVE making cupcakes as a family! My little girls LOVE helping Mommy stir the frosting into stunning colors with food coloring. Also I let the girls decorate at least one cupcake of their own. The girls are only 1 & 2 so you can imagine the mess we get to clean up later but all worth the laughter, smiles and yummy cupcakes!! We LOVE candy corn! We are making a batch today to match our fall photo’s. :o)

  63. jessica bennett

    I like to make graves with cookies and chocolate grahmcracker crumbs as dirt and put some gummy worms around. The kids love it!

    i like making cupcakes with graveyards, pumpkins, owls, skeletons, but most of all….monsters!!! I bake the cupcakes then take a plastic bag and fill it with green or purple or orange or yellow or blue frosting, cut a tiny hole in the corner and squeeze out frosting in little squiggles everywhere then i stick two m&ms on for eyes, theyre soooo cute!

  70. Sheila

    For last years Halloween, I made Mummy cupcakes and Vampire cupcakes! This year I am looking forward to creating something new!!

  71. Susan Krauss

    Since I am a girly-girl i am planning to make my pumpkin cupcakes all done in pastels and white!! Mix it up a bit!!!

  72. Maureen Leahy

    I make birthday cupcakes for my two October babies and I like to make red velvet or chocolate cupcakes with witch hats or spider/bat skeleton toppers.

  73. Jennifer Hopper

    I do all kinds of different designs for the fall holidays. I collect small decorations from the dollar store and after season sales so I always have interesting decor on hand. One of my favorite things to do is to use crushed oreo cookies and gummy bugs of all types, they make things a lot of fun and remind me of childhood.

  74. Maureen Chapman

    This year’s cupcakes will be cute not scary. Still with a fall theme such as pumpkins, cats, fall leaves etc. I will also be using decorated cookies as toppers. Having a fun party for all ages without the fright but all of the fun!!

  75. Kim Hall

    I love the colors of halloween and fall. Cute jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, and bats are lots of fun to make.

    I love making Candy Corn Cupcakes: 1st layer is orange, 2nd layer is yellow, topped with white icing and a candy corn on top!

  79. Laura

    I like to make pumpkin patch cupcakes. Make a couple look like classic pumpkins, with ridges, stems and leaves. But, throw a few Jack-o-lanterns in there to make it a bit more festive.
