Sour Worm Cupcakes

    5 minutes

    These are a great idea for an Aussie Halloween and are easy and fun for kids to decorate. Use snakes to place on top of these little chocolate cakes for fun birthday party or Halloween party cakes.

    1. Make the cupcakes according to the packet or recipe directions.
    2. When they are cold, ice with the chocolate icing. Cut snakes in half, add the extra icing to the cut halves, then place the cut halves in opposite ends of the top of the cupcakes.
    3. The effect you are after is worms crawling through the cake!

    These are cute. I made them for a kids' Spring party. I used two worms on each cupcake -- 1 across the middle, and 1 cut in half with each half sticking in opposite sides of the cupcake (looks like a worm going in under and coming out from under the other worm). The kids thought they were "cool." My cake mix yielded 18 cupcakes. I barely used 1 cup of "dirt" crumbs.  -  27 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a really dry cake - it needs something  -  13 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used this recipe with a vanilla/chocolate swirl cake mix and it was really, really good! Everyone at the Halloween party commented on how cute the cake was and they especially LOVED the taste. You can guarantee that this will be my signature Halloween dish. Thank you!  -  29 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
