Halloween Cupcakes Velvet Ghosts

Posted by Dee Stewart at 10:36 AM 0 comments Links to this post
I love this pic, but I'm thinking White Velvet Cupcakes instead of those Dirt Chocolate Cupcakes topped with Marshmallow Ghosts for the girls this year. I want the entire cupcake to look like a ghost. These cupcakes are easy for Selah and her BFF to make on Saturday. I'm a big fan of cupcake frosting for cupcakes. So here's the recipe.

I'll post what Selah and I create this weekend on Flickr , Facebook, and the blog.
Use sprinkles to make the ghost eyes.



White Velvet Cupcakes
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking power
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus a pinch for the egg whites
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (you can replace with another flavoring if you prefer: lemon, almond extract, etc.)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup mini-marshmallows
Marshmallow Frosting(This frosting recipe from Jennifer Shea of Trophy Cupcakes)

Ingredients

Makes enough for 2 dozen cupcakes

  • 8 large egg whites
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Place egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer. Set over a saucepan with simmering water. Whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved and whites are warm to the touch, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Transfer bowl to electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and beat, starting on low speed, gradually increasing to high, until stiff, glossy peaks form, 5 to 7 minutes. Add vanilla, and mix until combined. Use immediately.
