Wizard Cupcakes
What's your Take?

It won't take a magic spell for these cupcakes to disappear once your guests spot them.

What you'll need

  • 1 baked ice cream cone cupcake (see directions, above)
  • Skin-tone icing (mix red food coloring and cocoa powder with white icing for fair skin; mix cocoa powder or brown food coloring paste with white icing for dark skin, etc.)
  • Sugar eyes (or mini jawbreakers)
  • Colored icing in a tube (for hair and details)
  • Red shoestring licorice or fruit leather
  • Scissors
  • Sugar cone
  • Candy stars
  • Edible glitter or coarse colored sugar
  • Mini pretzel sticks
  • Star-shaped sugar cake decorations

How to make it

  1. To bake ice-cream-cone cupcakes, use your favorite box mix (not the "add butter" kind). Place flat-bottomed ice cream cones in a cupcake tray and fill three-quarters full. Bake as directed. These cupcakes are best made the same day since they get soggy after 12 hours.

  2. Place a big scoop of icing on top of the cupcake to make the head, smoothing as much as possible. Add sugar eyes, icing "hair," a licorice or fruit leather "smile" and any other details you like.

  3. To make the wizard's hat, use scissors to cut a sugar cone down to 2 inches (a parent's job). Coat with icing and decorate with candy stars, edible glitter or colored sugar.

  4. For the magic wand, coat a mini pretzel stick with icing, sprinkle with edible glitter or colored sugar, and attach the sugar star with a dab of icing. To finish, place the hat on the head, arrange the wand nearby, and, presto, you're done.

  5. Tip: If you use melted white chocolate rather than icing for the hats and wands, they can be made a week in advance and stored in an airtight container.
