Frosted mummy cupcake

Frosted mummy cupcake

I had more fun experimenting with the Betty Crocker aerosol cupcake frosting and ended up with a creepy mummy. The trick is learning to control the flow of the frosting, and I can’t really say I’ve mastered it yet.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white frosting; white aerosol icing (or you could use a pastry bag with a ribbon tip); 2 black or brown M&Ms. (Black M&Ms are sold at Halloween and in specialty candy stores, but brown or blue or red is just fine.)

How to Make It: Frost cupcake with regular white frosting. Place 2 M&Ms for eyes. “Draw” white icing ribbons (mummy wrappers), overlapping, several times until cupcake is covered except for the eyes.

There’s gum on this cupcake, and we don’t mean gum paste! (Sorry, cake decorating joke). Gum from a roll makes the wrapping on this not-so-scary mummy.

What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); white frosting; white or light green rolled gum; two blue M&Ms.
Make That Cupcake!: Frost cupcake white. Unroll section of gum. (Our gum was wider than we liked, so we used scissors to cut it in half lengthwise). Cut gum into various lengths and lay over top of cupcake, leaving space for 2 M&M eyes. You can lay the gum in longer-than-needed strips and trim with scissors while on the cupcake if you’d like. Add eyes and there you have it!
