Oogie Boogie Cupcakes
What's your Take?

Popping up from his underground cupcake lair, this bug-eating Halloween Town villain tastes way sweeter than he looks — particularly when served with a few candy worms on the side.

What you'll need

  • Batch of chocolate cupcakes
  • Cupcake frosting tinted "monster" green
  • Plastic decorating bag for piping frosting (check the cake decorating section of your grocery or craft store)
  • Kitchen scissors
  • Black licorice
  • Toothpick

How to make it

  1. Frost the cupcakes with a thin layer of icing.

  2. Oogie Boogie Monster Cupcakes

    Place a half marshmallow on the center of each frosted cupcake.

  3. Cut off the tip of the plastic decorating bag so that the opening is about 3/4-inch wide. Then fill the bag with green frosting (not too full or the frosting will come out the top when you squeeze it).

  4. Oogie Boogie Monster Cupcakes

    Working with one cupcake at a time, pipe frosting around the base of the marshmallow and then up and over it, moving toward the center and ending with a large peak.

  5. Smooth the surface of the frosting with a butter knife, periodically dipping the tip of the knife in water so the icing will be easier to spread. Don't worry about making it perfectly smooth -- it will look even more like Oogie Boogie with a few lumps and "wrinkles."

  6. Snip a pair of narrow licorice eyes and a wide licorice mouth for each cupcake. Use the tip of a toothpick to gently press the candy pieces into the frosting face, angling the eyes a bit to resemble Oogie Boogie's.
