Mummy Cupcake Cake

So, your dinking around
blogworld this week and you 
say to yourself, "Self...these
Halloween treat ideas are 
amazing but I need one that I can
do with lightening speed!"

And Self speaks back and says, "Yes, 
you DO need something quick and easy to 
WOW friends, family and foes...
AND something that doesn't
require buying a ton of new supplies"

Search NO more!

Cupcake MUMMY Cake

Original Idea tweaked from:


  • 1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
  • 6 vanilla cupcakes
  • 8 to 12 large marshmallows, cut into pieces
  • Baking cocoa and/or crushed chocolate wafers - I skipped the wafers part
  • Fun gravestone you can make on your own or BUY ONE at the Dollar Store like ME!


  • Frost tops of cupcakes. Arrange on a covered cake board, forming a mummy. Place marshmallow pieces on cupcakes. Insert basketweave pastry tip into a pastry bag; fill with frosting. Pipe long bands across the mummy, creating bandages.  If you don't have a basketweave tip, no worries just put frosting in ziploc back and cut a hole and go to town! Same results! 
  • Dust mummy with cocoa; sprinkle cake board with crushed wafers.


Mummy Jokes

Where do mummies go for a swim?
To the DEAD SEA!

Why was the mummy so tense?
He was all wound up!

Wow that is so much fun - love the photo on the tombstone. Lisa the lousy cupcake maker would never be able to pull that one off! I bet Sophia thought that was the coolest thing ever.

This is brilliant idea for Halloween party ideas. Your cupcake looks a attractive mummy. I never tried to make cupcake in this way, It will be best to make something new in this Christmas.
