Gravestone cupcake

Halloween is coming, and so are the ghosts and ghouls, rising up from the graveyard to bring you … cupcakes? Turn a chocolate-covered graham cracker into a gravestone with “R.I.P,” a party guest’s name or anything else you can fit on with writing icing.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; chocolate frosting; chocolate covered graham crackers; shredded coconut tinted green with food coloring (for grass); candy rocks. (You could also include a mellowcreme pumpkin).

How to Make It: Frost cupcake generously. Holding graham cracker vertically, use white writing icing in a tube or pastry bag to write “R.I.P.” or whatever you’d like. Insert cracker in frosting. Place tinted coconut and candy rocks around tombstone.

Make a whole tray of these tombstone cupcakes to get the full graveyard impact. Any oval or rectangle cookie will work: Milanos, Nutter Butters, etc.

What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); Milano or other oval or rectangular cookie; white, off-white or chocolate icing; black writing icing or gel; coconut flakes; chocolate syrup (or brown food coloring to tint coconut); candy “rocks.”
How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Tint coconut brown (it doesn’t have to be perfect; a “muddy” look is realistic). Write “RIP” or your guest’s name or whatever you’d like on cookie. Use a butter knife to make a slice in the cupcake to insert the cookie. Sprinkle tinted coconut on cupcake. Add “rocks.”
