Green Goblin Cupcakes
I love the frosting architecture of these green goblin cupcakes. For a different occasion this same design would make wonderful chrysanthemum, or other flower, cupcakes. How about piping in a doll head for a princess or fairy cupcake.

Cupcake Recipes and Butter Cream Icing
You can make almost all of these cupcakes using your favorite cake recipe or a boxed mix. You can make your own icing or buy canned icing. These are design ideas that you can use as a springboard for your own creativity. BUT if you want really yummy cupcakes and icing, go to my article: Old Fashioned Cake Baking Secrets and Recipes.
Magic Pumpkin Cupcake
Simple but elegant swirl design cupcake. Any candy could be placed in the center, but this one has the effect of a pumpkin in a pumpkin patch.
Halloween Candy for Toppers
Candy Corn Cupcakes
Sometimes the simpler the better. These not only look good, but they look very delicious, too. Again, any favorite treat could be pressed in the icing, but these look just right just the way they are.
More Candy Cupcake Inspiration (stringoftheories)
Well, not sure if I would really want to eat these, but it is Halloween. Make these brain food cupcakes with an icing piper and just the right tint of food coloring.
So easy and so cute! The most important thing about this design is getting a true black color to the features.
Top Hat Skeleton Cupcakes
A completely different idea for skeleton cupcakes. It's hard to be scared by these happy hatted guys. Use mini cupcakes and chocolate wafer cookies for the hats -- or how about peanut butter cups. M&Ms and small white jelly beans make eyes and teeth.

Fondant Ghost Cupcakes
Almost too cute to eat. So rich these fondant ghosts are best made as mini cupcakes.

One of the better designs for spider cupcakes I found.
Creep You Out Spider Cupcakes
Okay, now these are so real looking I wouldn't be eating them in the dark. The spiders are completely made with gum drops.

Mummies Watching You Cupcakes
There were plenty of mummy cupcakes lurking about, but I thought these were by far the cutest. Follw the photo and use a pastry tip to make ribbons of icing as shown, and candy pearl eyes.
Inspired by: blogniako
These pumpkin cupcakes are packing a hidden surprise inside to help them keep their shape (and help you lose yours). There is actually half of a package doughnut under that frosting.

Real Pumpkin Cupcakes
These pumpkin cupcakes both look and taste good. I love how these are decorated - very simple, yet trendy. They remind me of polka dot dresses and calico prints.
