Easy Pumpkin Cupcakes for Halloween

  • image

Halloween is fast approaching so I have been making some pumpkin and Halloween themed cupcakes.

These little pumpkins are very easy to make and would look great at any Halloween party.

What you will need:

Vanilla cupcakes tinted orange – you can use any packet mix or make a butter cake

Buttercream Frosting– tinted orange

Preztel Sticks

Spearmint Leaf lollies

Spread your buttercream frosting over your cupcake in a pattern to look like the grooves of a pumpkin.

Break a pretzel into small pieces and stick one into the top of your cupcake.

Cut a spearmint leaf lollie in half and place next to the pretzel and voila! There you have it.


To turn them into more of a Halloween cupcake, draw on a Jack-o-Lantern face with black buttercream. I used Wilton Black Gel Tube


Hope you like these little cakes. I’ve got a few more to post before Halloween as well.

  4. How fun is this! I love that you made them so simple (definitely something I can do), also I appreciate there being a “box method” kind of way to do them as well…I’m not much of a baker but cake mixes I can definitely do…this is a good way to add a little flair to those cookie cutter box mixes.
