Halloween Witches Cupcakes

Easy and adorable Halloween Cupcakes


  • 1 batch of 24 cupcakes (make your favorite recipe or use a box mix)
  • A lot of buttercream frosting and food coloring
  • 12 Oreos
  • 24 Hershey Kisses
  • Sprinkles



First Make the Witches Hats:

  • Separate the Oreos and scrape out the cream, so that 12 Oreos will yield 24 witches hats.
  • Fit a piping bag with a small piping tip, I used Wilton #14 and fill the piping bag with frosting two-thirds of the way full.
  • Pipe a small dot of buttercream on the top of the Oreo and press a Hershey Kiss in the center.  Pipe more buttercream around the Hershey Kiss and add a few sprinkles.  Set the hats aside while you decorate the cupcakes.

Next decorate the cupcakes;

  • Fit a piping bag with the large cupcake tip of your choice.  I used Ateco #828.
  • Fill the piping bag with frosting two -thirds of the way full.  Pipe the frosting on each cupcake, swirling as high you want.
  • Embellish the frosting with a few sprinkles.  

Put it all together:

  • Gently place the witches hat to the top of the cupcake, pressing down slightly.


  • Piping buttercream is optional!  You can also frost the cupcakes using an offset spatula or even a knife.  Just get the frosting on the cupcake!
