As Halloween and Thanksgiving rolls around this year, many like to bake cupcakes for both of these important holidays. Here are some cool, tasty and neat Halloween and Thanksgiving cupcake decorating ideas.
For Halloween cupcakes, you can choose chocolate or vanilla cupcakes and proceed. Either one will work with my decorating ideas. Chose a chocolate ready made frosting and frost the cupcakes. Decorate with orange M&M’s. Place four on each cupcake. These look festive and they add an orange color to your Halloween cupcakes. Not to mention, they taste great!
You can also choose to frost your cupcakes with vanilla ready made frosting and add junior mints candies to the top of them. The black and white effect is very colorful and fits right in with Halloween. Create a face on your cupcakes with them. You can also purchase Halloween pumpkin shaped candy and add it to the top of chocolate or vanilla frosted cupcakes. Or use both types of frosting and have a nice flavor choice for guests or partygoers.
For Thanksgiving theme cupcakes, frost them with chocolate ready made icing and add three candy corn candies the top of each cupcake. These look great and they fit right in with the Thanksgiving traditional color theme. You can also use vanilla ready made frosting on your cupcakes and add three pieces of candy corn. The effect is pretty and very festive. These cupcakes will please and impress your guests.
You can also add a few drops of yellow food coloring to your ready made vanilla frosting, stir well and frost your cupcakes. Then add some brown and orange M&M’s candies to the top of each cupcake. These fit in well with a Halloween or Thanksgiving theme. If you don’t want to use M&M’s, you can add a few pieces of candy corn to the top of each yellow frosted cupcake. This gives the cupcakes the fun fall colors and they will look great, too!
My next idea is fun and if you can find some small turkey shaped or pumpkin shaped chocolate candy, use these to decorate the tops of orange colored frosted cupcakes. All you have to do is add a few drops of orange food coloring into a ready made vanilla frosting and stir. Frost the cupcakes and add the chocolate holiday shaped candy on top. You can use chocolate or vanilla cupcakes for these.
For a pretty Thanksgiving theme cupcake, frost the cupcakes in chocolate and add sugared orange slice candy to the top. These look cool and they are very festive and unusual. This idea will work well with vanilla frosting, also. Again, the cupcake batter can be chocolate or vanilla. Either one will work marvelously.
For Halloween cupcakes, frost with orange frosting and add a few semi sweet mini chocolate chips to each cupcake. For fun thanksgiving cupcakes, frost with chocolate frosting and add a few butterscotch mini chips to the top. Both of these ides are lots of fun and yummy! They make creative and enjoyable Halloween or Thanksgiving desserts.
These easy Halloween and Thanksgiving cupcake ideas are fun to try and they look really good. Not to mention that they are delicious. Creating cool holiday treats is easy and affordable as long as you know some money saving cupcake decorating secrets. Happy holidays!
