I am making cupcakes for young kids to decorate at a Halloween party. I need suggestions on what to get them. I don't have a lot of time to prep anything homemade so am thinking of just getting whatever various sprinkles, so boring! Hoping someone has any clever ideas or at least topping suggestions...
Also, should I bring them frosted or let the kids frost them???
You could frost them for the kids on-site so the sprinkles will stick.
I can think of lots of ideas, but it's best to just google images of Halloween cupcakes. Definitely let the kids frost them on-site. That way their accessories will stick.
Could you get jelly beans and other various lollies so they could make scary faces on them?
If you frost the cuppies in black & give the kids black licorice whips & small candies, they could make spider cuppies.
Frost orange & give them candies and a little black fondant to make jack o'lantern faces.
I did simple ghosts--a fondant circle draped over a dum-dum lolli with a face drawn w/a food marker. You can cut the fondant ahead of time and sandwich it between layers of Press-n-Seal so that it is airtight. It should stay soft enough for the kids to drape over the sucker.
