The Big Eyed Alien Cupcake
Prepare the vanilla or chocolate cupcake recipe. Spread each cupcake with a thin layer of meringue buttercream tinted with a few drops of green food coloring. For the small eye, attach a mini marshmallow and create a pupil by painting on melted chocolate (microwave 1/2 cup chocolate chips for 1 minute). For the large eye, push the chocolate chip, tip down, into a regular-size marshmallow, then cut Gummi tape for an eyelid. For teeth, place 5 mini marshmallows along the bottom of the cupcake.
Stenciled Chocolate Cupcakes
  • 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup(s) unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup(s) warm water
  • 3/4 cup(s) buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoon(s) vegetable oil (such as safflower)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) pure vanilla extract
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 standard muffin tins with paper liners. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Mix in eggs, water, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla until smooth, about 3 minutes. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin tins. Bake, rotating tins halfway through, until tops spring back when lightly touched, about 20 minutes. Let cool in tins on wire racks.
  3. Before serving, place a stencil atop each cupcake, and dust with confectioners’ sugar. Carefully remove stencil.
Mummies Cupcakes
Prepare the vanilla or chocolate cupcake recipe. Spread each cupcake with a thin layer of meringue buttercream. Add jelly beans dotted with melted chocolate for the eyes and red Gummi candy for the mouth. Using a ribbon tip (such as Ateco #44), pipe bands of buttercream.
