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