Black Cat Cupcake
This black cat is anything but bad luck! Instead, it will charm your Halloween guests. You'll be enchanted, too, because this yellow-eyed sweet is a treat to make.
- Using purchased or homemade cupcakes in any flavor, frost each cupcake with chocolate frosting. Cover the cupcake with chocolate sprinkles; be generous to give the impression of fur.
- For eyes, cut a 1/8-inch-thick slice from the large end of two yellow gumdrops. Stick a short piece of shoestring licorice to the cut side of each slice to act as the cat's pupil. Press the eyes into the frosted cupcake.
- For ears, use a paring knife to cut chocolate candy coating dots into triangles. Insert ears into frosting on cupcake.
- For whiskers, cut shoestring licorice into 1-1/2- to 2-inch lengths and arrange on cupcake. Pipe a frosting nose.
