Before they arrived, I made three dozen cupcakes, a quadruple batch of buttercream and a big bowl of meringue frosting. Now, I had a lot of all the frostings left over… but I wanted to make sure the ladies had enough to work with!
So… on to the cupcakes! I taught them how to make three different cupcakes. First, was the ghost cupcake. I was inspired by the cake that Lemon Sugar made with the most adorable ghosts on top and thought they’d make the cutest cupcakes!
I showed them how to use a piping bag and large round tip to create these ghosts and then added black decorating gel for the eyes. Chasity got super creative and added a scary “ooooooooooooooooo” mouth to her ghost! (above)
Next, it was on to the Spiderweb Cupcakes. I’ve made these in the past and they are one of the easiest cupcakes to make! In the picture below you can see the ladies frosting their cupcakes with the spatulas… another technique they learned at the class.
Finally, we made my favorite… the Monster Cupcakes! As soon as I saw these little cuties on the Sweetology blog, I knew I had to make them myself and decided they’d be another great addition to this workshop.
Emily got super creative with a couple of her monster cupcakes… added lots of eyes, eye lashes and combining the colors! But, I think my favorite came from Sue. She made a monster with three eyes! SOOO CUTE! I mean SPOOKY! hehe (below)
I had about a dozen extra cupcakes, so I let the ladies decorate them anyway they wanted. We ended up with a table full of some pretty spectacular cupcakes!
A big GIANT THANK YOU goes out to Sue and Chasity for coming to my first Workshop here in Germany! I had a ton of fun preparing for this class and even more fun teaching you how to make these Spooktacular Treats!!
