Cupcakes with Witch Appeal

Good day, friends!

I was so happy when my SIL suggested a family dinner last weekend. I needed a dose of hugs from Doug's family {plus there's babies over there!}.

I had made some witch hat cupcake toppers several weeks ago, and this little outing was the perfect excuse to bust out some cupcakes to take along. I used a devil's food cake mix, and this canned frosting that you add a flavor packet to ~ I used orange cream. It was pretty good stuff.


Here's a simple little tutorial for those who would like to know...

From left to right in the photo above:  I used punches to make two circles, one small and one a little larger. The small circle is the base of the hat, and I used a paper piercer to poke a hole in the base for the toothpick to go into later on. The larger circle gets cut in half - one half gets rolled around and I used a glue dot to adhere the little cone shape. I traced around the cone onto the small circle/base, used that as a guide for squeezing my glitter glue, then squished the cone into the ring of glitter glue. Technical, eh?


If the broom fits...

Yum! These are adorable, and thanks for the frosting link. I'm making cupcakes for a Halloween Open House, and am on my way to the grocery store in just a few minutes. (I bought cupcake toppers; yours are cuter!)

They look great - and I'm thinking that they could be adapted into clown hats or even Santa hats, too! :)

So glad to hear about your family dinner. Hope you had a lovely time, with plenty of hugs and babies xx
