The wicked witch of the cupcake.

October 9, 2013

Vintage postcard: flying witches.

Yeah. That’s right. Today we’re talking about witches. Because in case you’ve been living under a rock, it’s October, and that means one thing to me: Halloween.

Ohh, Halloween. My favorite time of year. The leaves changing (hopefully) & crunching beneath my boots, the air getting brisker, the wind kicking up. The costumes & makeup start appearing in stores earlier & earlier nowadays, but I reserve my Halloween excitement for the first week in October. I refuse to do ANYTHING Halloween-related before October 1st. Yes, it’s my favorite holiday & yes, I’m excited. But it’s like buying Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving; it’s just wrong to me. I’ll wait until October to celebrate Halloween… & I’ll wait until December 1st for Christmas, thanks.

That being said, I was super psyched to post this little cupcake topper how-to. I couldn’t wait any longer! I didn’t come up with this idea myself (unfortunately) but I did somewhat modify it from the original directions. I did that because I didn’t have matching mini cupcake liners & regular liners. I don’t do many mini cupcakes, so I never buy the liners. I adapted the directions to suit me & my materials, and with just a little bit more work put in I think they look just as cute. Ladies & germs, I give you…

I know. Adorable.

And easy.

The original directions (found hereย at The Cake Blog) call for cupcake liners & mini liners. The regular liners make up the pointy part, and the mini’s make up the brim. Well, like I said, I didn’t have any that matched. And I’m not about the mis-matching in this case. So I went with another option: I used one regular-sized black liner as the pointy top.

That part is really simple: just keep folding it in half until you have a triangle that’s around 1/8th the original size. Then I just poofed it out a little so it wasn’t flat, and taped it on the seam with a teeny piece of Scotch tape. And then, instead of using a mini liner, I cut another regular-sized black liner smaller to make the brim. So you’ll need two liners for each hat you wanna make. And I’d suggest having a few extra in case of mistakes.

I folded the top part of the hat (the point) like stated above. Then I took the second liner & cut it all the way around. Like this:

Then I cut out a C-shape just like she says to do right in the middle. I slid that part over the pointy part, down to the bottom. And voila! A tiny little witches’ hat!ย You can use any color or pattern liner that you want. Other than black, purple, green, orange or striped/polka dotted ones are great choices. Or black liners with spiderweb or ghost patterns.

And another excellent idea? Use brown liners & make Harry Potter “Sorting Hat” cupcakes. I know, I know! Clever. Beyond clever.

Pop them on top of your frosted cupcakes & you’re done! Happy haunting.

  1. I would make these if I knew how to make cupcakes.. but then I don’t think they’d last very long cause I’d tear the cupcakes UP!!

  2. I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  7. I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours as
    of late, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
