  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar and continue mixing.
  • Gradually add eggs and vanilla; mix well.
  • Combine dry ingredients together then alternate adding the dry ingredients into the butter mixture with the milk; mix until well blended together.
  • Pour batter into paper lined muffin tins until about 3/4 full.
  • Bake until golden brown on the top and center is firm or insert a toothpick into the center of the cupcake, they are done when the toothpick comes out clean.
  • Combine powdered sugar, softened butter, vanilla, and a small amount of milk in mixing bowl, mix with hand mixer on low speed.
  • Gradually add small amounts of milk to obtain the consistency that you are looking for. The more milk, the more creamy and smooth the frosting will become. Less milk will make the frosting more manageable and firm.
  • Once you have reached the desired consistency add food coloring to create the color you want.
  • Repeat steps to create frosting for each color.
  • Decorate your cupcakes as desired and serve, be prepared to be spooked.
Note: 3 cups of cake flour can be substituted for the 2 5/8 cups of all purpose flour and 3/8 cup of cornstarch if preferred.

"This is a fun idea for Halloween cupcakes but it took me a lot of time. I made the for the kid's party at school. It was well worth the time though because the kids at school loved them! Next time I will try to get some other moms to help."
