Owl and Monster Cupcakes

Our family has Family Game Night once a month and this month's theme was Halloween.  I wanted to make something the kids would like, so I found this recipe online for Owl Cupcakes.  They are SO cute!  However, they ended up being more time-consuming than I expected and I gave up after 8.  I still had 16 cupcakes to do something with, so the rest were made into little monsters.  The owls are made just like the recipe.  For the monsters, I used the banana Runts candies for the noses, Runts or MnMs for eyes, candy corn for their horns and white icing mouths.  They all came out pretty cute and I had a lot of fun making them...even if there ended up being only Big Kids at the party (as in, Big Kids over 20!)

To get in the spirit of things, I'm linking up this week to the Get Your Craft On party over at Today's Creative Blog

These look yummy and so fun! I would love using a variety of candies and letting the kids just create their own monsters.

Jami, thanks for stopping by! Yes, I agree it would be great to let the kids make their own. Mine is too small and the set up wouldn't work for that at our family party, but maybe next time!
