Easy Stenciled Cupcakes for Fall
Decorate Fall Cupcakes with Stencils
Decorating cupcakes with stencils is a fast and easy way to decorate cupcakes with fall designs.
With just a little bit of powdered confectioner's sugar, I turned these chocolate cupcakes from drab to fab in a few short minutes.
It is really very simple. Below I will show you the three quick steps to creating these lovely Fall Cupcakes.
Choose the Right Cupcake Recipe
When stenciling with Confectioner's Sugar, I often leave off the icing and just stencil the top of the baked cupcake. Because there is no frosting or icing, it is important to choose the right cupcake recipe.
For the cupcakes featured in this article, I made Devil's Food cupcakes. For convenience, I used a box mix, but I have recommended a few cupcake recipes below that do not require frosting.
I also prefer a mixing bowl with a pouring spout. It just makes it so much easier to fill the cupcake liners.

If you add Confectioner's Sugar while the cupcakes are hot, the confectioner's sugar will be absorbed by the cupcake, therefore your design will basically disappear.
Supplies You Will Need to Get Started
On the cupcakes in this article, I used the Martha Stewart Fall Collection Stencils and the Wilton Autumn collection.
The Maple leaf and the large acorn are both a part of the Martha Stewart Fall Collection of stencils.
The two little acorns are a stencil from the Wilton Autumn collection.
If you do not see a stencil that you like or if you have a treasure trove of cookie cutters, you can use small cookie cutters instead of stencils.
You can see several cupcakes I decorated with cookie cutters in my article, Easy Stenciled Cupcakes for Halloween.
