Happy Friday friends! I’m very excited to announce the winner of the giveaway!
The winner of the McCormick Halloween Baking Kit is:
Julie Scott Laws
Congratulations, Julie! I will be contacting you by email so that McCormick can send out your baking kit. Thank you so much to everyone that entered!
Now, on to these adorable ghost cupcakes. Seriously, how cute are they?
To make them, I used the same chocolate cupcakes from the spider & jack-o-lantern cupcakes. (Lazy? Yes, yes I am. Actually, let’s call it resourceful. Okay cool.) I frosted the tops with black frosting (also from the other cupcakes) and I made a marshmallow buttercream for the ghosts. I made little ghost faces with more of the black frosting.
Look at the cute chubby one!
I had so much fun sharing all of my Halloween cupcakes this week! I hope you get a chance to try them out for your Halloween celebration!
makes enough to frost 12 cupcakes
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened but cool
3.5 ounces (half of a container) Marshmallow Fluff
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract (optional)
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter & sugar until lightened in color and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add in marshmallow fluff & vanilla (if using) and mix until combined.
Frost as desired.
