These cupcakes are as mysterious as the Dark Lord himself. Fairly simple to decorate, you just need extra black buttercream frosting with a smattering of red sprinkles.

Seriously so easy and yet big difference! Why not gross out the kids and whip up some of these slimy treats?!
Chop up a couple of handfuls of Mini Snickers, Milky Ways, Twix and 3 Musketeers bars to sprinkle on top of the frosted cupcake. To make the skeleton hands and bones, simply melt white chocolate chips, and use a piping bag to draw the shapes onto a parchment paper-lined baking tray.
Black Cats and the Hollow Moon
Melted candy lollipops form the full moons backlighting these bad-omen cats.
