  • White Cake Mix and ingredients listed on box
  • Cupcake Liners
  • Icing Pipping Kit optional
  • White Icing
  • Candy Corn
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Pretzel Sticks


  • Start by preparing your cake batter according to box instructions.
  • Fill your cupcake liners 1/2 of the way full.
  • Bake cupcakes according to box instructions.
  • After baking let cool completely.
  • If you choose to use a icing pipping kit, fill your icing bag with your white icing.
  • Start in the middle of the cupcake working your way out and up with the frosting.
  • I placed my cupcakes in the freezer for about 5 minutes to allow the icing to stiffen up a bit before adding the pretzels.
  • Next add two pretzels to each side of the cupcake for "arms".
  • Add one candy corn for the nose and several mini chocolate chips for eyes and a mouth.
  • Serve and enjoy!
