Jack-Skellington-Cupcakes (Courtesy Family Fun) Mmm, spooky cupcakes! The Halloween treat ideas floating around this year are terrifyingly wonderful, from Disney Online’s Rat Casserole and Candy Corn Parfaits to these awesome little Jack Skellington Cupcakes from Family Fun Magazine.

Chocolate cupcakes
White buttercream frosting
2 toothpicks
Tube of black decorator’s icing

1. Frost the cupcakes.
2. For each cupcake, use the tip of a toothpick to lightly etch the outline of two large Jack Skellington eyes in the frosting.
3. Slowly pipe black decorator’s icing onto the etched lines and then fill in the inner circles. Use another toothpick to spread and smooth the icing.
4. Pipe on two short lines for a nose. Next, pipe a long line across the bottom of the cupcake for the mouth. For the finishing spooky touch, randomly top the mouth with a bunch of short icing barbs.
