Double double boil and trouble… Something yummy this way comes

(Gotta love Shakespeare)

Considering it’s almost Thanksgiving, I figured I’d better get my chocolate-covered butt in gear and post pictures of the cupcakes I made for Halloween. ‘Cause no one wants to see a picture of this guy come December 25th:

Sure, he’s cute and all. But he’d feel just a *tad* out of place amidst all the Frostys and Rudolphs.

(Irony of all ironies, an ex-boyfriend ate this cupcake!)

I brought these cupcakes to a wild party.

Sadly, some of the partygoers weren’t exactly lucid enough to appreciate my hard work. *Le sigh* Serves me right for taking cupcakes to a college party. Still, the cupcakes were without a doubt the most popular guests: there definitely weren’t enough to go around, and people ended up cutting them into 4ths!  (*Note: as usual, the cupcakes were vegan and 100% edible, right down to the glitter.)

The line-up:

Batting first for the Halloweenies, we have Scary Black Cat. One of my favorites… until the person who chose to eat it was another ex-boyfriend!

Personally, I think he should’ve chosen this one instead: (Just kidding; there’s no animosity between us. Thankfully, I’m still friends with most of my exes.)

Batting second: Frog&Hat. This cupcake was devoured by a giant pumpkin!

Next, we have Ghoulish Ghostie, looking quite pale. He could definitely benefit from a trip to Planet Tan.

Batting clean-up was Pluto (my all-time fave Mickey-Mouse character).
Below, another “bat”ter:

And the rest of the players:

    Wow, these are all so cute! I have to say that I am loving the Pluto cupcake the most. But all of them showcase your superior cupcake skills!! Way to go, Cupcake Queen!

  5. brooke says

    you are the cupcake queen! katie, these cupcakes belong in a bakery! you should think about pursuing it 🙂

    p.s what frosting recipe do you use!? it always looks perfect!

  6. Julie says

    They are just wonderful ! Well done ! I agree with everyone, you should open a vegan bakery ! What can I say despite the fact that I did not succeed the frosting so far with my own cupcakes. Well, obviously, I am diabetic so I cannot eat sugar, but I’m sure I’ll find a tip to succeed with agave nectar or any other natural sugar substitute.

  7. Joanna says

    Those are great! I don’t have the patience to bake… but I really appreciated the lovely baked goods you and other vegan bloggers create!

  10. lighterportions says

    Once again your cupcakeing skills never fail to impress.
    Love them all. I’m with you on favouriting with the black cake. The batty gets an extra special nod too!

  11. Nazarina A says

    These were without a doubt the best looking cupcakes, I have seen and it would have been sweeter if I could taste them right now! I have an award for you and possibly a vegan dessert! LOL!

  12. Catherine says

    Loves it! Haha I liek the “team photo” at the very end. Do you use fondant mixed with food coloring on top for the little critters? (and if so, do you make it yourself?)

  13. Fitnessista says

    oh my goodness! those are SO CUTE! i think my favorite one is the candy corn one, since i’m slightly obsessed with candy corn. do you make holiday cupcakes too? a snowman one would be adorable
    have a great night! let me know when your bakery opens– i’ll be there

  14. ChocolateCoveredVegan says

    I am so sorry I missed your comment earlier!!! I really hope you look back to see this :o/

    I usually either use frosting from VCTOTW cookbook OR I am lazy and use Pillsbury frosting (which is actually vegan!).

  15. Tanja says

    I know this is a very old post… but I’d simply love to know how you made the decorations… (not the frosting, but the little guys 😉 )
    Pluto is my favorite!

  16. Anonymous says

    You should open a bakery, as everyone has said before me. lol I would definitely buy your food! I try to make them but they are probably not nearly as good.
