You guys know I’m always looking for an excuse to make cupcakes. It doesn’t even need to be a good excuse, sometimes just the fact that it’s a Tuesday evening and I don’t want to do laundry is sufficient. With Halloween coming up though, there are all kinds of good reasons to make cupcakes. I love all of the different decorating ideas that are out there and I did have a hard time deciding how to decorate these. But, as soon as I saw these on Pinterest I promptly decided to skip the spider theme and go with Chocolate Mummy Cupcakes.
I used my favorite chocolate cupcake as the base, it’s moist and flavorful. It’s dipped (twice!) in ganache to add a little extra fudgy flavor, then it’s topped off with some candy eyes and stripes of whipped vanilla buttercream. The decorations are so, so easy. The variation and imperfections are part of what makes these cupcakes so cute, so don’t stress about making sure the bandages are perfect.
