So here they are...
Aren't they cute?
When I was looking for my pumpkin cookie cutter to make these Pumpkin Cut-Out Cupcakes, I came across a weird shaped one. I think it used to be a gingerbread man. You could easily make your own by bending a gingerbread man out of shape a bit.
So here's what you do.
You need your cupcakes to raise slightly above the edge of the cupcake wrapper, so you fill the cupcakes just a bit more. I usually get about 22 cupcakes instead of 24 out of a mix this way. The instead of baking them at 350 degrees, I bake them at 325 instead and leave them in an extra few minutes. They'll come out looking something like this.
Then slice off the top.
Cut out your shape.
Pop the top back on.
Pipe some white frosting for an eye. Again I used a ziploc bag with a small hole cut in the corner.
And a mini-chocolate chip to the eye.
And it's done.
Ready to feed to all the little monsters at your house.
Please show my sponsors some love...
