Wicked Witch Cupcakes

Prep Time:

30 minutes


12 servings


Green Buttercream Icing:

2  c.  H-E-B Baker's Scoop Confectioner's Sugar

1  c.  unsalted butter

1  tsp.  Baker's Scoop Pure Vanilla Extract

¼  c.  milk

*  green food coloring

For Decorating:

*  Chocolate Cupcakes (pre-made from H-E-B)

12  chocolate sugar cones

1  tube  black decorating icing

1  container  black casting sugar

1  pkg.  chocolate wafer cookies

1  lb.  black licorice laces, cut into ¼-inch, ½-inch and 2-inch lengths

12  candy corns

*  brown mini M&Ms


To make Buttercream: Mix butter in food processor or mixer for 30 seconds. Sift in sugar, and mix until smooth. Add vanilla and milk. Continue mixing until it reaches a spreadable consistency. Add 2-3 drops of food coloring. Continue mixing together until desired color and consistency. For a softer frosting add more milk, for a thicker frosting add more sugar.

Cover the tops of each cupcake with a generous mound (about ⅓ cup) of buttercream. Insert one candy corn into each cupcake to form a nose. Using brown mini M&Ms, insert two into each cupcake to form eyes. Place two short lengths of licorice above the eyes to form eyebrows for the witch. Place the shorter licorice lengths above the eyebrows to form bangs. Trace the top of the ice cream cone with black icing and press it to the wafer cookie to form a hat. Place an inverted cone on top of bangs, pressing gently into buttercream to adhere. Place the longer licorice lengths under the cone hat to form the hair.
