Some ideas for decorating Halloween cupcakes include using different types of candies and cookies to make spooky faces on top of the cupcakes. Or, use icing to draw a spider web or a pumpkin face.
Use marshmallows, chocolate sandwich cookies and any small round candy to make big eyes on top of the cupcake. Or, top the frosting with plastic spiders and other ugly bugs. Fondant makes a great witch's hat or mummy bandage. A cupcake wrapper can be shaped into a cute witch's hat, and novelty toothpicks are easy to decorate with. Use liquorice strings for spider legs or novelty candies such as bones or eyeballs for fun Halloween cupcake decorations.
