Step-By-Step Guide on How to Make Skull-Shaped Halloween Cupcakes
Part I. Bake the Cupcake.
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Celsius.
Step 2. Line cupcake pan with paper liners and set aside.

 

Step 3. In the medium bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda, all spice, and ginger. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
Step 4. In another bowl, mix the sugar, melted butter, and eggs. Add the dry ingredients little by little and whisk thoroughly to avoid lumps. Add the pumpkin puree and whisk until the batter is smooth and silky.

 

Step 5. Fill the cupcake molds halfway and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Make sure to rotate the tray at least once for even cooking. To check for doneness, gently press the top of the cupcake to see if it springs back. Add a few more minutes in the oven if needed.

Pro Tip: Alternatively, to stick to the Halloween theme, you can make skull shaped cupcakes! To make skull shaped cupcakes, you will need a few kinds of stuff that will not melt on the baking tray to make the jaw. Place a few marbles, screws, bolts, or any implement that will not melt in the oven or will not smell funny when heated. Fill the cupcake mold halfway through and bake.
Step 6. Let the cupcakes cool before frosting.

Part II. Creating the Frosting.

Step 1. Cut your room temperature butter to several pieces for easy mixing.
Step 2. Add 4 cups confectioner’s sugar and fold the mixture with a spatula. Don’t use your handheld mixer yet, or there will be dust of sugar everywhere!
Step 3. Now that your sugar is wet with the butter, mix for about five minutes at low speed. When you get a homogenous sticky mixture, add milk and vanilla to the mixture to thin and fluff the mixture.
Step 4. Set aside ¼ of the mixture in a separate bowl and add the cocoa powder to make a chocolate flavored frosting (this chocolate flavored buttercream frosting is essential for designing your skull cupcakes!).

Part III. Frosting your Cupcakes

By the time you are done making your frosting, the cupcakes are more than halfway cooked. Let the cupcakes cool when they are done. Do not frost hot cupcakes. And ,any people have learned this the hard way. So your frosting will melt on top of hot cupcakes!
Using a spatula, spread buttercream on top of your cupcakes. And serve after dinner or pack them in a meal prep bag for take-out if you can’t get enough of it!

For your special skull cupcakes, there’s a few more details you have to do to impress the young ones and the guests!

Step 1. Fill your piping bag with the chocolate frosting.
Step 2. Use a small round decorating tip for dispensing the frosting.
Step 3. Imagine a skull and draw the eyes, the nose and the teeth on your skull shaped cupcakes.
Step 4. Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done!

Final Words

This is a relatively easy recipe to make. Although there’s quite a number of ingredients you have to prepare, you will be done in about an hour or an hour and a half. Prepare in advance and serve after dinner!
If you can’t get enough of it, make a few batches and put them in the fridge. Eat sparingly!

We love unconventional cakes, and since Fall is in full swing, we thought it would be adequate to create a flavorful dessert in the form of Pumpkin Sheet Cake with delicious Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Frosting!

To add to that this cake is soft, super moist and very easy to consume!

Ingredients

For Pumpkin Sheet Cake:

  • 1/2 cup canola oil — or melted cooled coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar — light or dark
  • 1/4 cup honey — plus 2 tablespoons
  • 4 large eggs — at room temperature
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree — NOT pumpkin pie filling
  • one 1/8 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder — I recommend aluminum free
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice — or substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • just 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour

Pumpkin cake with cheese cream frosting 1

For Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 6 ounces 1/3 reduced-fat cream cheese — also called Neufchatel; do not use fat free
  • 3 tablespoons non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter — softened to room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, then lightly coat with baking spray.
  2. In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl, beat together the oil, Greek yogurt, brown sugar, and honey until well blended and smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, incorporating between each. Beat in the pumpkin puree.
  3. Sprinkle the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice over the top. Mix to combine. Then, sprinkle in the whole wheat flour and all purpose flour. By hand with a wooden spatula or spoon, stir the batter, just until the flour disappears.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, then with an offset spatula or spoon, smooth the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place the cake on a wire pan to cool completely.
  5. To make the frosting: In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, butter, vanilla extract, and salt at medium speed for 2 minutes, until fluffy and well combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the powdered sugar, increasing the speed to medium as you go. Beat for 1-2 minutes until well combined. Spread frosting evenly over top of cooled cake. Let the frosting set for 10 minutes (you can pop the cake into the refrigerator if you are in a hurry), then slice and serve.

And there you have it, the perfect Fall dessert at your fingertips! As for those cookie lovers, try our Brown Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies.

Whole30 Chicken Salad

Whole30 chicken salad pin

This Whole30/Paleo Chicken Salad is inspired by Waldorf chicken salad. You can use grapes or dried cranberries (this will make the salad more juicy) and nuts (that will add on its crunchiness). You are not allowed to use diary in Whole30 recipes, so instead of using Greek yogurt, I added tahini!

Ingredients

  • 1/4cup raw sliced almonds or raw walnut halves
  • 2cups 1/2-inch-diced cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2cups seedless red grapes — halved
  • 3medium stalks celery — diced (scant 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1large green onion — thinly sliced (about 3 tablespoons), or 2 small/medium green onions
  • 2tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4cup tahini
  • 1/2teaspoon kosher salt — plus additional to taste
  • 1/2teaspoon black pepper — plus additional to taste
  • 1/8teaspoon garlic powder — plus additional to taste
  • 1tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 5tablespoons hot water — plus additional as needed

FOR SERVING:

  • Bib or romaine lettuce
Whole30 chicken salad 2

Instructions

  1. Toast the nuts: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the nuts in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes (for almonds) or 8 to 10 minutes (for walnuts) until crisp, fragrant, and toasted. Set a timer and do not walk away from the oven during the last few minutes, as nuts can burn the moment you stop watching. If using almonds, transfer to a small bowl; if using walnuts, transfer to a cutting board, then let cool a few minutes and roughly chop.
  2. Place the diced chicken, grapes, celery, green onions, dill, and toasted nuts in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, add tahini, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Whisk to combine. Add the apple cider vinegar, then the hot water, and stir until smooth. Add additional hot water 1 tablespoon at a time, until you have a smooth, pourable sauce that seems like a thick dressing.
  4. Pour the tahini mixture over the chicken mixture and toss to coat. Taste and add additional salt and pepper as desired. If time allows, refrigerate for 2 hours. Serve piled inside lettuce cups and enjoy!
