Trick (or Treat) Cupcakes

Sooo this isn’t exactly a recipe, just an awesome idea I had that I wanted to share.

I made these cupcakes for my Halloween party over the weekend. Plain white mini cupcakes are the perfect vehicle for fun flavored frostings… and much easier than making multiple flavors of cake AND frosting.


The TRICK here for these special Halloween cupcakes is that the flavors I used do not match the bright Halloween colors!

Tasters didn’t know what to expect from an innocent little looking cupcake… and then BAM! Surprise flavor explosion!


The orange ones are strawberry, and the green ones are cinnamon!


The only problem that we ended up with is that the strawberry ones had to be eaten first, otherwise the cinnamon totally overpowered your taste buds and you couldn’t taste the next one.

These were so much fun and I know I will be doing this again… it’s fun to be able to TRICK somebody with a TREAT!


In addition to regular food, I also made Fun & Easy No-Icing Sugar Cookies, Homemade Kettle Corn, and something else that I am still perfecting, so no recipe yet…
