Creepy Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

 My fun witch is our hostess for today!  Cissy and I made cupcakes with gummy fingers that Cissy stuck in the frosting.  Won't you join us?


 I made this towel years ago and I thought it would make the perfect table covering.  


 Here's Cissy with two of the three plates of cupcakes that she was able to take home to her siblings.  It was her idea to make red velvet cupcakes, and you can find that recipe here Don't you just know that she's loved when she comes home? The gummy fingers came from Target. 




Yield: Enough to frost 24 cupcakes

Cream Cheese Frosting

This frosting is so yummy and Cissy wanted a cream cheese frosting for our red velvet cupcakes.  Cissy used some red frosting to add for "blood".  You can see my son's cupcake in the background with a hand coming out.

INGREDIENTS:


  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS:


  1. Put the butter and cream cheese in a bowl and beat with a mixer. Add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, and beat well. Add the vanilla and mix.
