Ack, I posted this on the Cake Ideas forum, but I think so few people browse that forum that it's not a good spot for when you need an answer ASAP. Can you please take a look at my post about having kids decorating halloween cupcakes with supplies ON HAND, and let me know if you have any suggestions?? They are due here in 20 minutes and all I can think of is orange frosting!! Thanks http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-607538.html
you can put different colored forsting in baggies and just clip a tiny hole in corner to use as piping bag and skip the tips.
Use mini marshmellows to make ghosts (stick them on toothpicks stacked and pipe black eyes & mouth)
you can let them try and pipe spider webs and put a rasin on it with black piped laegs for spider
green frosting for frankenstein/witch's face
which I could think of more... Good luck!
I *heart* you, thanks for the great suggestions I've seen so many wonderful halloween cupcakes here and read lots of great threads about them, but haven't seen a ton suitable for kids this age that don't involve purchasing other things with which to decorate. Love the raisin spider!
