Are you having FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out)? Getting the anxious feeling that everyone is already Halloween-ing better than you are and you’ve probably missed your chance? Take a breath before diving into the holiday madness that is October-December, every year. If you’re looking for a festive last minute Halloween treat — these vegan vanilla cake cupcakes are at your rescue. The base takes minutes to whip together and the decorating is very simple to do.
These vegan vanilla cake flavored cupcakes were inspired to make my own version, with a Halloween twist. It was impossible for me to pick a favorite. Decoration-wise, I might go with the monsters–it was really fun to pick out different types of candies for their noses and ears, and give them all unique faces. Add fun candy eyes to the cupcake to make it more interesting. These candy eyes are what really make these Halloween cupcakes so cute. You can find edible eyes in most grocery or craft stores. They are typically found with cupcake/baking supplies in either store.
