With Halloween right around the corner, the kids have been anxiously waiting for the day that they can wear their Power Ranger costumes. As much as I’d love to be able to make their costumes each year like my mom did growing up, I didn’t acquire her sewing skills at all and will gladly order what they want to be. But if you need a dessert for the school Halloween party or neighborhood get together, I’ll gladly spend hours in kitchen doing what I love, baking.

Easily add a spooky touch to any cupcake with these tarantula-shaped gummies, realistic gummy earthworms, and gummy eyeballs. If you’re pressed for time or don’t like to bake you can even purchase store bought cupcakes and top them with these creepy gummy candies.

Earthworm Cupcakes:

  • Make your favorite cupcakes according to directions.
  • Frost the top with chocolate frosting.
  • Dip the top into crushed oreos (dirt)
  • Top with a gummy earthworm

Tarantula Cupcakes:

  • Make your favorite cupcakes according to directions.
  • Frost the top with chocolate frosting.
  • Dip the top into crushed oreos (dirt)
  • Create a spiderweb using white frosting. Place the white frosting into a ziploc bag and snip the corner. Or use a decorating bag with a Wilton 3 tip.
  • Top with a gummy tarantula.

 Monster Cupcakes:

  • Make your favorite cupcakes according to directions.
  • Decorate cupcake using Wilton tip 233.
  • Stick a toothpick into each gummy eyeball and place the opposite end into the cupcake.

I have to admit, I’m not sure I could have eaten those earthworm cupcakes if I spotted them at a Halloween party, they really do look like real worms. The kids on the other hand thought they were the greatest, especially if they had one hanging out of their mouth and bumped into an unsuspecting friend who though they were eating a real worm.

When it comes to hosting a Halloween party, you don’t have to break the bank for the kids to have a fun night. Choose simple decorations, and add a few fun touches like these skeleton straws and Jack-O’Lantern cups that I found at Oriental Trading.
