These Decorative Halloween Cakes are Inspired by a Magical Cauldron

These simply decorated Halloween cakes by Cupcakes and Kale Chips take inspiration from the magical brew lurking in a witch's cauldron. The cupcakes are meant to replicate the green potion bubbling overtop of the large black pot filled with the ability to grant wishes and toy with mortals.

The cupcakes begin with a pre-made devil's food cake mix that is baked in black cupcake paper liners to replicate the shape and aesthetic of a black cauldron. Once cooled, the cupcakes are topped with a cream cheese frosting made with sugar, heavy cream and vanilla. The frosting is dyed a ghoulish green using food coloring and topped with large green apple gum balls and circular sprinkles to replicate the brewing bubbles.
