Vanilla Halloween Cupcakes with Fluffy Purple Frosting


Halloween is such a fun holiday for the whole family. My kids and I love decorating the house and especially the outside. My son goes crazy with the scary decorations. He asked me to make a scary cupcake. So, here is my version. It’s so easy using a boxed mix and frosting. Just add your favorite food coloring along with funny and spooky decorations. Boo!


Vanilla Halloween Cupcakes with Fluffy Purple Frosting

Yields between 18 – 24 regular size cupcakes




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place foil or paper cupcake liners in two 12 cupcake pans or a 24 cupcake pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, dump mix and with a whisk, break up any little clumps. Add the rest of the ingredients except frosting and food coloring. Mix well to combine. You can use an electric mixer and beat for 2 minutes or whisk by hand. Make sure you use a rubber spatula to dig down deep and incorporate all dry ingredients into the wet.
  3. Using a 1/3 measuring cup, pour batter into prepared tins. Bake for about 15- 17 minutes. Check after 12 minutes. Tops should spring back and dry crumbs should be on toothpick when tested. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Open frosting tub, add food coloring right into the frosting tub. Remember to follow the directions as to how many drops for the right color. Mix well with a small rubber spatula or spoon.
  5. When cupcakes are cool, have fun frosting and adding all your favorite decorations.
