These squished witch cupcakes were so easy to make and would be PERFECT for a Halloween party!!! I am sure everyone has seen some variation on Pinterest, but I want to show you how to make them ridiculously easy. The ones I had seen on Pinterest had homemade fondant legs, shoes crafted out of doll molds, etc. Yes, they were insanely cute. But when I made these guys I didn’t have that much time or energy. Someday when I am on Cupcake Wars though I will…
I used a box cake mix to make some chocolate cupcakes, as well as some store bought frosting. Once the cupcakes had cooled I frosted them with a medium layer of frosting. Nothing fancy. You’re going to squish them, anyway! I did make sure to get RIGHT on the edge of the cupcakes so the frosting would be visible once they were upside down.
I grabbed a bag of Starbursts and a package of Sour Punch Straws. I cut the straws into thirds, so 2 straws made 6 legs, or 3 cupcakes. I took the Starbursts, cut them in half and shaped the ends of the toes so they were curled and pointy, what I pictured a witch shoe would look like.
Since each cupcake has to be served upside down, you will need either mini paper plates or some way to move them/serve them. I was in such a hurry and only had giant Dixie plates. They would not have been cute at ALL. I took a piece of cardboard (actually, it was a large envelope someone had mailed me something in!), cut it into individual squares, covered them in tin foil (no tape required, I told you I was in a HURRY) and voila! Individual plates for the cupcakes. Since Dollar Tree carries tons of cute Halloween and party supplies, I would go there and grab some small plates. But do what you got to do.
