Zoulah has been baking again; she just can't get enough of Halloween baking. It's not like she can bake Halloween goodies during the Christmas or Valentine's Day season -- this is her time and she's making the most of it! Today she made some Moldy Mummy cupcakes. She took some moldy mummy cupcakes over to our new neighbors; the Red Couchers can't eat all her treats, and Zoulah is just a welcoming kind of witch. Zoulah is a big fan of the Women's Day magazine; these, and other fun Halloween cupcakes, were on the cover several years ago.
Moldy Mummy Directions:
Batch of favorite cupcakes -- Zoulah used a Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Cake Mix
Batch of Buttercream Frosting -- click HERE for a recipe
M and M's
Decorator Tip -- Zoulah used a #47 Wilton tip.
Bake cupcakes and cool. Make buttercream frosting and tint lightly with green coloring. Load into decorator bag and attach tip. Dab a bit of frosting on two M and M's and attach to cupcake as eyes. Then begin to "wrap" cupcakes in frosting, laying frosting in mostly diagonally strips -- leave opening around eyes. This was a fun Saturday project; the Red Couch girls helped frost the mummies.
Cupcakes without the mold spots. They look like they need some mold spots.
To get the "spotty moldy effect," put a small amount of cocoa in a small-opening sieve (strainer) and shake lightly over cupcakes.
My youngest took a bite out of it and Zoulah thought it looked like a monster.
Zoulah thanks you for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.
