How To Make Spooky Cupcakes with Chocolate Bats

I found these cute orange and black Wilton Cupcake liners a while back….so I decided on a simple dark chocolate fudge cupcake with deep orange-colored vanilla buttercream frosting.

We made our first attempt, with the chocolate bats, at using a candy mold… NOT as easy as it looks! lol

Too bad I hadn’t seen Cindy’s post first…check out her tips on using candy molds.  But PLEASE don’t laugh at the poor job I did with the eyes and mouth! lol (In my defense, i had several phone calls while I was working on these! lol….so I’d like to blame them as well) *Friends don’t let Friends bake and talk on the phone!

Halloween cupcakes

No matter how they turn out….cupcakes are fun to make, and even more, fun to eat.   They make the perfect treat for Halloween parties, or to have around the house for your little goblins.
