Happy Wednesday! It’s October and Halloween seems to be at the top of everyone’s minds. Today, I’ve partnered with some awesome bloggers to bring you a whole lot of Halloween inspiration, specifically involving witches… ohhhhh! So are you ready to see my witch craft? Check out these Witch Hat Cupcakes, the perfect treat to take to a party!
Witch Hat Cupcakes
How fun are these? They are relatively easy to make, they are just a little tedious. But I promise the kids will love them :)
How To Make Your Own Witch Cupcakes
– Chocolate Chips
– Chocolate Cupcakes
– Buttercream Frosting (1/2 Cup Butter, 2 Tbsp Milk, 2-3 Cups Powdered Sugar)
– Red and Yellow Food Coloring
Start by melting the chocolate chips on medium/low in a saucepan. Once they are fully melted roll the sugar cones in the chocolate covering the entire suraface.
Next, roll the cones into the purple sugar sprinkles. I also found that sprinkling them on worked too.
They them on a piece of wax paper to harden. Mine were hard after 2 hours, but you could also place them in the freezer to speed up the process.
Now it’s time to assemble the hats. Get out your cookies, cones and icing and we are good to go.
Line the bottom of the cone with the frosting and attach it to the flat side of the cookie.
Using a round frosting tip, decorate the edges.
If you wanted to, you could stop here and just have witch hat cookies, but I think they look pretty darn cute as cupcake toppers. So bake yourself a batch of chocolate cupcakes (choose your favorite recipe).
Then make a batch of buttercream frosting. I always use the basic recipe of 1/2 cup butter, 2 Tbsp milk, 2-3 cups of powdered sugar. Just slowly add in the sugar until it is the consistency that you desire. Lastly, add a few drops of red and yellow food coloring to create orange.
Frost your cupcakes and top them off with a little Witch Hat!

OMG! Those are just too cute. I love them and am going to give them a try. I hope you’re well and enjoying motherhood to two! It’s a ride, isn’t it???
What a wild post, love the witch’s hat cupcakes, awesome tutorial. I might even could do that. I’m not real patient when there’s lots of steps. Our daughter , she might want to attempt it, she’s a great cook and believe me she didn’t get it from me. I could care less at this point in life about cooking, hubs does it pretty much all now, good thing or he’d starve.
When kids all young (4) it was quite a challenge to keep them all full, including hubs. I must have missed that cooking gene as my Mom and (evenDad)cookedreally well all the time. My Mom came from a great cooking and baking awesome stuff family. Me, nah.
How is it being a Mom to 2 little munchkins now? I can only imagine that baby is changing and growing. Oh how I’d love to be able to love on that little guy and your little lady. They are both so precious.
Tally ho Taryn. Great post.
So, so cute! And I love cupcakes :)
