Monster Cupcakes

Gearing up for the fall season and Halloween at work we have been playing around with some cupcakes. We needed a chocolate based, kid friendly cupcake to replace the Cookies and Cream cupcake for a while. Here are some of my little creations from this afternoon. I love this little monsters!

This was the first little guy that I did this afternoon. I accidentally broke one of my pretzel sticks but honestly, I think it works. :-)

One of my favorite things about these cupcakes is that they don't have to be perfect. In fact, I think they look better in all of their imperfections. Case in point? Check out the Coconut Long Boy candy I used for his ear collapsed and curled up. I think it just adds character! And you can change them around a bit to create a different look.

 Two of the monsters in the bakery case. The cupcakes are upside down, so packing them to go is a bit tricky. But it's convenient to already have them plated.

These are SO much fun to make and oh so easy!
