5 Adorable Monster Cupcake Ideas
Summer is the perfect time for kids' parties. With everyone out of school for the next few months, there's no better theme for your "little monsters," as some parents refer to their children during the summer break (affectionately, of course!). Monster treats may be commonly associated with Halloween parties, like these scary interpretations, but creatures don't have to be creepy to make for sweet treats. Some fun details, like "fuzzy" icing and candy eyes, can give any monster cupcake life without the scare factor. Here's a couple of easy and imaginative takes on monster cupcakes. If you need a couple of pointers, check out some of our expert icing tips before you start.

Have you ever wanted to try your hand at piping but didn't know where to start? These fuzzy buds are the perfect project to start with. Just add a couple of marshmallows for an instant monster effect.

Even beginner bakers can handle these googly-eyed guys. Just pick your favorite color of frosting and use a large star tip to pipe the icing onto the cupcake flavor of your choice, then plop on a pair of candy eyes for a simple-yet-adorable effect.
Mouthful Monster Cupcakes
These cute little cakes are a mouthful with a mouthful. Feel free to get creative with your colors and icing tips, but don't forget to add a mini-sized candy—monsters gotta eat, too.
Cotton Candy Monster Cupcakes
These one-eyed wonders are so pretty to look at, you might not even want to eat them—but with M&M eyes and that tuft of cotton candy on the top, you won't be able to help yourself.
