Toothy Skull Cupcake

Sure, the recipe makes one cupcake, but we think a big group of these would be gorgeous. To speed up the decorating process, break it down into steps: first cut all of your licorice, then put eyes on all of the cupcakes, arrange the noses, and the finally add the teeth. Trust us, this technique will shave minutes off of the total time. Don’t be afraid to firmly press the white jelly beans into the frosting; they’re fighting gravity so they really do need to be secured. If you’d like the white frosting to pop it’s okay to use a chocolate cupcake instead of vanilla.
