One-Eyed Purple People Eater Cupcakes...

Can anyone else believe that Halloween is upon us!?!

Not me.

I've been so busy with my girls arranging and taking them to appointments and now, I'll be picking up my oldest from basketball practice and attending games.

With our weather, finally sunny and bright... I thought I'd better snap a shot of these totally easy cupcakes. I am really going to have to break down and buy one of these sets for my food photography.

Soon... very soon. From what I hear and remember when we lived in Southern Oregon many years ago, it will be dark all winter long. So, no natural light to take photos... BOO!

Anyway, with most of us having busy schedules, I thought I'd share a treat that you can whip up in no time. These are perfect for a Halloween Party, either at home or in the classroom!

I hope everyone has a safe and fantastic Halloween!

One-Eyed Purple People Eater Cupcakes

  • Cupcakes, Completely Cooled
  • 2-3 Batches of Frosting, Canned or Homemade
  • Purple Gel Food Coloring
  • Candy Eyeballs, Colored or White
  • Decorating Tips #12 and #233
  • 2 Decorating Couplers
  • 2 Disposable Decorating Bags, 12in or 16in
Begin by thoroughly mixing the purple gel food coloring into the frosting, adding as much or as little as desired.  Add a coupler and tip to each decorating bag. Divide the frosting, fill the bags, and secure them closed. 

Beginning with the #12 tip, pipe a swirl of frosting onto the cupcakes for the base, covering as much of the cupcake as desired. Once all the cupcakes have been frosted, begin using the #233 tip. 

Starting at the outer area of the swirl base, begin piping the "fur" onto the cupcake frosting base. Apply pressure to the bag and pull away a bit then stop pressure, to get the affect of strands of fur. Continue working your way around inwardly, and toward the top of the cupcake base. Cover any areas that may be without "fur." Top the cupcake with a candy eyeball to finish.
