If you are hosting a Halloween party, these Trick or Treat Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes are really popular. Simply bake up a batch of your favourite cupcake recipe (we have included ours below), and decorate with chocolate ganache, sprinkles, and Halloween Cupcake Flags. Baking with kids is such a fun activity and they will enjoy making some cupcake toppers to decorate their cupcakes while the cakes are baking.
To make the cupcake flags, punch out a scalloped circle from coloured card. Print some Halloween images on white card or use some Halloween stickers. Use a smaller circle punch to punch out the images, and then glue them into the larger scalloped circle. Tape a toothpick to the back and pop them in your cupcakes.
