Witch Cupcakes

This year for our Church Trunk or Treat we decided to go with a Wizard of Oz theme for our costumes, and trunk. So of course we needed our treats to match as well. I had seen some witch hats on pintrest that I loved originally posted on the Betty Crocker web page.
I also saw these cute witches originally posted by cupcakestakethecake
So what better Wizard of Oz character could I go with than a melting Wicked Witch!!
I came up with 2 different versions. Which one do you like best?
Version 1
 ...or version 2
I used Oreo cookies for the cookie since these are Cookies and Cream cupcakes. I say why make food that looks good if it's not going to taste good too!


What you'll need:
  • your favorite chocolate cupcakes
  • frosting for decorating
  • green and black food coloring
  • Hershey kisses
  • Oreo cookies with cream filling removed
  • red mini M&M's

What to do:

1)After baking your cupcakes cut out the center to fill. Put cupcake cores in a bowl and set it aside.
2)Now fill your cupcakes with your favorite filling. I used the whipped cookies and cream frosting.
3) Use your cupcake cores to make cake balls for your witch heads. Crumble to cake cores with some frosting, shape into balls, place on a plate or cookie sheet, and refrigerate for about an hour.
4)For cupcake version 1 now use a knife to frost your cupcakes.
For cupcake version 2 take some green frosting and make some squiggles on the top of your cupcakes. This is the already meted parts of your witches so it doesn't have to be perfect.
5) Now it's time to make your hats. Use frosting to glue a Hershey kiss onto the unwritten side of an Oreo cookie. Add a band with colored frosting if you'd like.
6)If your cake balls are firm enough you can now place them on the center of your cupcakes.
7)Frost your cake balls green. Pipe on some black eyes and hair and a green crooked nose.
8)Use a red mini M&M for the mouth and place on he hat.
And there you have it a melting wicked witch! I think it might be fun to do a hybrid of the two versions.
These cupcakes tasted wicked good (in my best wicked witch voice)!
