Last May Michal posted the funniest pics of an awesome monster cupcake she bought and I've been dying to make some for Buddy to take to school ever since. And of course what day screams monster cakes like no other? So this is my version with way more hemajang mouths.
I baked these using a chocolate cupcake recipe from Jenn that turned out to be the perfect denseness for what I needed. I think if I had done my usual box mix they would have been too moist and crumbly and I would've had a hard time doing the mouths without it falling apart. I also used a super ono recipe for the frosting (from Jenn as well) in lieu of canned frosting which always tends to be too creamy and not stiff enough for my liking.
The eyes are mini marshmallows sliced in half and teeth are bits of cut marshmallows. I piped the eyes with melted chocolate and the horns with more frosting. As usual my piping sucks but I think this time my sloppy piping actually makes the monsters look even crazier which is good right?
And as usual with all my cupcake projects I am up way too late so I'm off to bed now. Thanks Michal and Jenn! Happy Halloween everyone!!
