If you're hosting a festive Halloween party this season then these creepy deserted tree cupcakes are Halloween sweets that you should be for sure making. Each cupcake is decorated to look like a decaying tree in a spooky candy corn graveyard.
To make these Halloween cupcakes begin by making a deliciously sweet chocolate cake base. Once the cupcakes are cooked in individual muffin tins, cover each cake with a layer of chocolate frosting. Stick strips of black licorice into the center of the cupcake so the candy stands upright to represent tree branches. Then surround the perimeter of the cupcake with a layer of candy corn to represent a fence. You can add edible fondant tombstones too for an added spooky touch.
