mini eyeball cupcakes

Get out your shiniest cauldron and your eye of newt — Halloween is the perfect time to concoct a dozen of these delicious Mini Eyeball Cupcakes! Wilton® makes it super-easy with the step-by-step instructions below, so take a look and make these terrifying treats!
Step 1

Project Note: There’s not really any eye of newt in this recipe. (Phew!)

First, preheat your oven and mix up a batch of cupcake batter according to your favorite mix's (or recipe's) directions.

Step 2
Next, place mini baking cup liners into your mini muffin pan. Use a batter spoon to fill each cup with batter. Bake your cupcakes, then let them cool.
Step 3

Divide the decorator icing into one cup portions, then tint each portion with a fun monster color. Place each color of icing into a separate decorating bag fitted with tip 1A.

TIP: Want to make the same colors as in the featured cupcakes? Here’s how to mix each one:

  • Orange: Mix orange icing color with a touch of brown.
  • Pink: Mix Rose icing color with a touch of Red-Red and black.
  • Mint: Mix Kelly Green icing color with a touch of Sky Blue.
  • Teal: Mix Sky Blue icing color with a touch of Golden Yellow and black.
  • Blue: Mix Royal Blue and Violet icing colors together.
Step 4
Pipe a large dot of colorful icing onto the center of each cupcake. Have fun mixing and matching colors!
Step 5
Finally, place a candy eyeball onto the center of each cupcake.
