Meow! These Black Cat Cupcakes are absolutely purr-fect for any Halloween celebration! Better Homes and Gardens has posted an easy to follow how-to guide so you can bake up these adorable kitties using your own favorite cupcake recipe!
Using purchased or homemade cupcakes in any flavor, frost each cupcake with chocolate frosting. Cover the cupcake with chocolate sprinkles; be generous to give the impression of fur.
For eyes, cut a 1/8-inch-thick slice from the large end of two yellow gumdrops. Stick a short piece of shoestring licorice to the cut side of each slice to act as the cat's pupil. Press the eyes into the frosted cupcake.
For ears, use paring knife to cut chocolate candy coating dots into triangles. Insert ears into frosting on cupcake.
For whiskers, cut shoestring licorice into 1-1/2- to 2-inch lengths and arrange on cupcake. Pipe a frosting nose.
