October Lifeteen cupcakes

I've started the process of making the Life Teen birthday cupcakes!  They are turning out really well in my opinion:)  Here are 3 of the 4 variations I plan on making.  The witches hats are going to be changed some, I'm not going to dip the whole thing in chocolate, just the sugar cone, it was too much chocolate and messy too!  I will probably but a hatband on them also to jazz them up a bit.  The spider webs will also be changed from being on a high hat to being flat...I think it will make them pop a little more, but I'll have to try it out to be sure:)

I'm really pleased with how they are turning out!  I'm going to try out the pumpkin cupcakes soon, hopefully tonight, but we have to wait to see how my baby is feeling, she hasn't been feeling well.  I'll post recipes and instructions along with more pictures soon.  But if you are like me you won't want to wait, so I'll explain quickly.  The witches hats are a sugar cone with cupcake baked in it, I flipped it over and used melted chocolate to attach it to a chocolate sugar cookie.  I then dipped the cone in more chocolate, you can add a fondant or frosting hatband for a bit of pizzaz.  I used melted white almond bark to make the spider webs.  I traced out a pattern that I printed off the computer and added a little dark chocolate spider for whimsy.  These were attached to high hat cupcakes (you can google a recipe, I used Martha's).  The Ghosts were also a version of a high hat but instead of a chocolate cupcake I used a vanilla and I covered the topping with white almond bark.  I then rolled out some marshmallow fondant into a rough circle, I placed it over thee whole cupcake letting it fold and wave to make it appear as if the ghost is floating.  I then used dark chocolate to put on the eyes and mouth.  Hope you enjoyed this little preview!
