Halloween ghost cupcakes
These cupcakes are fun to create with your kids for the upcoming All Hallows’ Eve. Each piece is topped with a buttercream marshmallow frosting that’s further spiked with a tonic water, due to which they glow and turn into illuminating ghosts in the dark. Don’t worry about the flavor of the tonic water, as it can blend with other palatable flavors.
Buttercream marshmallow frosting
Ingredients: Two sticks of butter, 17-oz bottle of marshmallow creme, three cups of powdered sugar, ¼ cup tonic water, and chocolate chips for garnishing.
Once you’ve collected all the ingredients, beat butter and marshmallow in a hand mixer for about three minutes until the mixture gets fluffy. Add half of the powdered sugar and tonic water into the mixture and beat until it’s smooth. Add the remaining powdered sugar and continue beating for another three minutes.
Finally, you can pipe the frosting on freshly baked and cooled cupcakes. Make eyes of the ghost cupcakes with chocolate chips.
