Ghost Cupcakes

I’ve got a quick and easy Halloween treat idea for you.  I found these Reynolds shaped baking cups at either Target or Walmart; there are 24 of them and they are ghost shaped.  Mix up a cake mix, any kind, (I did a yellow cake mix and mixed ghost, pumpkin and bat shaped sprinkles, which I bought at my local grocery store Maceys, into the batter because I couldn’t find any of the Halloween Funfetti cake mixes that they usually do this time of year, did they not make them this year?) 1 standard cake mix will fill all 24 of the cups.  Place batter filled cups on a cookie sheet and bake according to package directions for cupcakes.  Let cool and frost with canned frosting, using mini chocolate chips for the eyes.  Doesn’t get much easier than that, now does it?  These are for the Young Women tonight; we are making haunted houses out of cupcakes for our activity night tonight and these are their treats for after.  (I’ll post the haunted house pictures later tonight or tomorrow so you can see how they come out.)

  1. Curious, I have the same tins and plan to use them today. I’d like to try and take them out to frost all sides. I’m hoping I can just spray and they’ll pop out. Did you try taking them out?

    • I did not spray the tins as the instructions said you didn’t need to. I watched some of the kids eating them and the tins peeled away almost perfectly from the cupcakes! Hope that helps, sorry it took so long to respond.
