Ghosts in the Graveyard Cupcakes

(4.0 Average )
A frightfully fun decoration for cupcakes. The spooky ghosts are simply dollops of vanilla frosting.

  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Black Food Color
  • 2 containers (16 ounces each) vanilla frosting
  • 24 oval shaped cookies, such as Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Cookies
  • Assorted decorations, such as chocolate sprinkles and miniature chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Prepare cake mix as directed on package, adding vanilla. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon of the black food color to tint cake batter gray. Spoon batter into 24 paper-lined muffin cups.

  • Meanwhile, tint 1 container of frosting black with remaining 1 teaspoon black food color. Frost cupcakes, reserving 1/4 cup of frosting. Spoon reserved frosting into small resealable plastic bag. Snip a small corner from bag. Pipe “RIP” onto top half of each cookie. Push tombstone cookies gently into cupcakes.
