Booo-tiful Halloween Movie Cupcakes


Posted in , ,

This year for Halloween my husband had the greatest suggestion. He said why don't we invite some friends over and watch some Halloween movies. That got me thinking. Why don't I make cupcakes to go along with each movie we are going to watch? I am so excited about my cupcakes. I think they came out great! They are Pumpkin Pecan Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting. YUM! I also made chocolate transfers (my first time ever!) of a character from each movies. You'll find the pics and recipes below. Enjoy and have a happy and safe Halloween!

Pumpkin Pecan Cupcakes (recipe by ME!)

1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin pie filling
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup self rising flour
1/4 cup candied pecans (recipe here)

Mix heavy cream, vanilla and eggs together for 1 minute. Add eggs and mix for 3 minutes. Add pumpkin pie filling and pumpkin pie spice and mix until combined. Fold in flour and pecans. Bake cupcakes for 20 minutes at 350.
