From Shanna's Kitchen: Dirt cupcakes

by: Shanna Fortier Associate Editor

With the holiday season approaching, there are so many opportunities for fun decorative sweets.

Halloween is one of my favorites because you get to transform into something different, something from a dream or fantasy world. But people are not the only ones that get to dress up. You can dress up your cupcakes to represent something sinister as well.

Last week I was enlisted to bake for a costume party, and I knew my cupcakes needed to be in costume also.

My first thought was to do something with eyeballs or brains, but when I thought about the time constraints associated with that baking day, I decided I better go with something quicker.

I decided on to put a twist on one of my childhood favorites: Dirt cupcakes, which are chocolate cupcakes and chocolate frosting topped with Oreo crumbles and gummy worms.

WARNING: This is a rich treat and a messy decorating process.
