Frankenstein Cupcakes

I feel like it has been forever since I got to make some fun cute cupcakes!! So when a halloween party got scheduled for our Mom's group here I signed right up to make a sweet treat knowing all along it would be cupcakes!! Then I found out the theme was mad scientist lab and I knew I had to try and stick with the theme! So of course I went to pinterest for ideas, there was eye ball cupcaks, cupcakes with bugs both good fits but I kept coming across these cute Frankesteins from Your cup of cake.

I am not gonna lie they were a little more difficult then I expected. I think she used more frosting per cake then I did but I remembered a little tip from another cupcake I did. A wet finger tip!! Yep that was my trick to these a cup of water and a wet finger.

 What you need
24 chocolate cupcakes baked in brown or black wrappers
Butter cream frosting
    1 1/2 cups softened butter
     4-5 cups powdered sugar
     1 teaspoon vanilla
Green food coloring
Red food coloring
chocolate sprinkles
chocolate chips
1 package of edible eyes

First step is to make your frosting, beat your butter and vanilla until creamy slowly add your sugar until you are at the consistency you like mine took probably 4.5 cups. Now take a small amount out (maybe 1/2 cup) and color the small amount red, and the rest will be green.

To start you need to pipe a large swirl on to each cupcake with the larges tip you have or a large cut hole in the bag you are using. I found that I used less which was for the best because I did not need to be responsible for giving a sugar high to 20 kids on one cupcake haha.

Step 1 swirl of green.

Step 2 & 3 (I failed in taking a picture of these steps)
          In a bowl pour out your chocolate sprinkles, take your cupcake with a mound of green frosting and dip the top of the frosting into the sprinkles and flatten the frosting.

step 3 dampen your finger with some water and smooth the sides around the frosting. Sprinkles will be sitting on top and the sides will be smooth.

Step 4 Add edible eyes and on each side of the "head" a chocolate chip that is now bolt in his head.

Step 5 with the smallest pipe tip you have or tiny hole cut into a bag pipe with the red frosting a stitch to each monster.
