These are great at Halloween. I use cake and icing mix to make it quicker but of course you can use your own recipes for these. Watch this recipe being made on Allrecipes Halloween Cupcakes Video.

Liz Harrison

Serves: 24 

  • 1 package (470g) chocolate cake mix
  • 1 packet (500g) prepared icing mix
  • 3/4 cup chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs
  • 24 morning coffee, shortbread or other rectangular sized biscuits

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Prepare and bake cake mix according to package directions for cupcakes.
  2. Make the icing mix and ice the cakes when cool, reserving 1/4 of the mix.
  3. Fill a pastry bag, fitted with a plain tip, with remaining icing. Draw a cross or R.I.P. on each biscuit. Stand a decorated biscuit on top of each cake so that it looks like a gravestone. Place the cakes on a large tray that has been covered with green paper. Place paper ghosts and bats randomly through the graveyard. Serve!

Easy and effective. I added these to a table of halloween food and they were gobbled up. Trick is finding light biscuits of the right shape and size. - 10 Nov 2012
