Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

Halloween Creepy Cupcake Cones

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

We had some colored ice cream cones here at the house and wanted to make something spooky with them. We came up with these Creepy Cupcake Cones. My boys and their friends thought these were AWESOME and we had so much fun creating them!

Creepy Cupcake Cones for Halloween - Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf, Bride of Frankenstein....these cupcakes are such a fun party idea!

They wanted to make the classic monsters so we made The Bride of Frankenstein, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, & Dracula.

Halloween Creepy Cupcake Cones

Creepy Cupcake Cones

Cake Mix (we used Pillsbury…any flavor)
Colored Ice Cream Cones (we used Kroger brand)
Chocolate & White Frosting (we used Pillsbury)
Edible Eye Candies
Red Cookie Frosting (we like Betty Crocker brand)
Green Jelly Beans (for Frankenstein)
Assorted Candies & Sprinkles

We started out by making our cupcakes in our cones. We covered a muffin pan with aluminum foil then poked holes in the foil (this prevents the cones from tipping). Fill the cones with whatever flavor cake mix that you have just a tiny bit over half way. Make sure not to fill it more than that or the cake will over flow when baking. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean).

Bride of Frankentein…we had made a few extra regular cupcakes and placed half of one on top of her head. We then piped on frosting around and on top. We piped on a lightening zig zag strip on her hair with white frosting. We attached edible eyes, chocolate sprinkles (for lashes), and a small heart candy (for lips) with white frosting.

Frankenstein…We spread chocolate frosting on top for his hair and then piped on the top sides. We attached the edible eyes on with frosting and piped on the eye brows & mouth. We cut a green jelly bean in half for his electrodes.

The Wolf Man…We piped on the hair with chocolate frosting making it stick out. We made his mouth with red cookie frosting and then attached broken heart candies for his teeth. We piped on the eye brows just like we did his hair.

Dracula…We spread the chocolate frosting on top and they piped around the top front and sides. We made a red mouth with the red cookie frosting and then attached a small white broken heart for the fangs. We attached 2 red heart candies for the bow tie.
