Ingredients

  • Chocolate Cupcakes - I used a chocolate stout recipe that I have been using for years.
  • Royal Icing
  • Milano Cookies
  • Cream cheese or desired icing
  • Crushed Oreos
  • Marzipan
  • Food Coloring

Directions

  • Add food coloring to marzipan and make hands - set aside on Reynolds Parchment Paper to dry a little
  • Bake cupcakes as directed and allow to cool.
  • Use royal icing to pipe "RIP" on the milano cookies - set aside to dry
  • Once cupcakes have cooled cut a small slit in the top and place the cookie upright.
  • Ice the cupcakes. I used a tip made for hair and or grass.
  • Sprinkle a small amount of crushed Oreos infront of the tombstone.
  • Use a small knife or spoon to make a small bowl in the oreo crumbs.
  • Dip the base of a marzipan hand in green icing and place in the "dirt".
  • Touch up with dirt as needed to cover the icing glue.

Notes

These were my final project for Halloween. I had seen spiderweb dicut cupcake wrappers but wanted something a little less ordinary. I spotted these picket fence wrappers and knew instantly that they would set this project off.
