Spooky Scary Sweets Week ~ Tombstone and Wicked Witch Cupcakes!

The Wicked Witch of the East, the poor darling, certainly didn’t have much of a role in the Wizard of Oz movie. Can you imagine that casting? “Um can you handle a house being dropped on you and your legs and shoes will become iconic but no one will know who you are? You will always be second fiddle to your sister…..”

These cupcakes were inspired by The Domestic Rebel who did a MUCH better job at the Wicked Witch cupcakes than I could have ever dreamed of! They were a very involved project and I certainly wouldn’t make them for just anyone, but my ballet friends are super special and deserved some Halloween cheer.

Still, I’m pretty happy with my efforts given that I started the project with the intent of using jellybeans, ran out, found some GF Jubes and decided that they were better and sparkly so starting over! Good thing I used a cake mix for both the chocolate and the vanilla cupcakes or it would have been way too much to take on given my current time crunch.

Enjoy your spooky scary sweets for today and don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY!!!

Tombstone Cupcakes
12 x pre baked chocolate cupcakes
½ container of prepared chocolate frosting, melted
1 x package of gluten free chocolate cookies ground finely (I used Aldi Has No chocolate biscuits)
12 x tea biscuits (I used Eskal)
1 x tube Queen writing fudge (white)

Using the Queen writing fudge, carefully pip “RIP” onto each biscuit and place in the fridge to set. I used the back of the tea biscuits as they appeared more like stone but you can also dip them into chocolate for extra flair.

Dip the tops of the cupcakes into the melted frosting and then into the cookie crumbs one at a time.

When frosting has hardened slightly, cut a large slit into the top of the cupcake in order to insert your “tombstone”.

Wicked Witch Cupcakes
Concept from the Domestic Rebel
12 x pre baked vanilla cupcakes
1 x container of prepared vanilla frosting, coloured with Queen green food colouring
12 x thick, short liquorice sticks (I used Darrell Lea)
12 x gluten free red jube like lollies, each cut in half
1 x tube Queen writing fudge (white)

Lay out the liquorice sticks on a baking tray and drizzle the fudge to make lines on the “socks”.

Using the fudge as glue, carefully attach the flat, cut side of each jube to the end of the liquorice stick.

Carefully make 2 holes with a sharp knife or cupcake “corer” in the centre. Once the socks have set, CAREFULLY insert the legs into the cupcake holes. I had quite a few that I damaged and just repaired them once they were inserted. witch cupcakes 2

Have fun with these…..although they were fiddly to make, they certainly produced a reaction when I dropped them off  :)
