Skull cupcake

Nothing says “Halloween” and “appetizing” like the dried-up skull of the undead. But seriously, folks: With just frosting and black icing you can make your own skeleton or skull cupcakes.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white or off-white (cream cheese) frosting; black gel or writing icing in a tube.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Try to smooth the frosting down so you have a nice, flat base on which to draw your evil skull face. (You may note that I did not, thus my skull is sloppy.) Use gel or writing icing to draw blobby eyes, 2 dots for a creepy nose and a line with little lines crossing over it for a mouth.
