Today, I want to show you how to prepare some adorable and fun Frankenstein cupcakes. Children love cupcakes, and so these snacks will steal the show at your next Halloween party. All you need are chocolate cupcakes, green and black frosting, candy eyes and edible sticks for decoration. They are really simple to make, but will leave a lasting impression and I can guarantee you that they will be gone within minutes of serving them. Don’t worry if the decoration is not perfect because these tiny details will make your spooky Frankenstein look even more real. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
