When it comes to cupcakes, most kids don’t even touch the cake–it’s all about the icing. Why not give them something else to love? Since marshmallows are a favorite amongst almost every kid, these easy-to-make skulls are the perfect way to decorate Halloween cupcakes for kids.
Make cake mix (or your own recipe) cupcakes and top with store-bought icing (or your favorite recipe). To turn your marshmallows into skulls, grab a pair of scissors. Cut a third of the curved side of the marshmallow off in order to create a flat surface for the marshmallow to stick onto cupcake. Then, trim an angular sliver from the two bottom sides to form a tapered chin. (TIP: Do not cut it to a point.) Cut a slit above the chin for a mouth.
Using a toothpick, poke two eye holes at the top of marshmallow and one in the center for a nose. Fill holes with sprinkles and set on top of cupcake.
Healthy Taste-Good Tip: Substitute a half a banana for one of the eggs in a box recipe for a homemade taste with a little added produce.
