Halloween Cupcakes

Here are a few decorating ideas for Halloween cupcakes.DSC_2314

Zombie brain Cupcakes: mix frosting with green organic food coloring and spread on cupcakes. Add half a walnut as the brain and decorate with red sprinkles or icing sugar

Orange black cupcakes: Mix frosting with orange organic food coloring and spread on cupcakes. Decorate with orange/ black sprinkles

Mummies cupcakes: Apply white frosting with an icing bag in horizontal stripes. Leave out a thin gap and paint two black eyes with black gel.


Often times though, I am very grateful for the complete decorating cupcake kits form baking companies…

Halloween Cupcakes
Yields 16
Write a review
  1. 2 1/4 cups stoneground flour
  2. 1 cup date paste
  3. 1/4 cup raw sugar
  4. 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  5. 2 tbsp coconut oil
  6. 2/3 cup raw cacao powder
  7. 1 1/4 cup coffee (for the kids I use decaf coffee)
  8. 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  9. 1 tsp salt
  10. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  11. 2 tsp egg replacer mixed with 3 tbsp water
For the frosting
  1. 3/4 cup icing sugar
  2. 1 tbsp vegan butter
  3. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  4. 1 tbsp soy milk
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line cupcake molds with Halloween cupcake wrappers.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in another bowl and mix well.
  3. Stir in dry ingredients to wet ingredients until well combined.
  4. Fill cupcake wrappers to two thirds with dough and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Let them cool off completely.
  6. For the frosting combine all ingredients well. Adjust according to the type of cupcakes (see above).
  1. I usually use very little frosting if at all- too much unnecessary sugar. You can substitute the frosting with colored coconut whip but with all the nasty candy around on Halloween, I'd rather have the kids eat these cupcakes.
