This cake was popular at my niece's birthday party, however I was not impressed with the frosting recipe. Does anyone have suggestions to make the frosting thicker. It was too thin and gaped in between the cupcakes. No one seemed to mind, but I'd like to perfect it the way the video shows it. Thanks, elaine :)

Peppermint extract & green food coloring to a can of premade white frosting. Turned out adorable. Bought a tube of decorator icing in black, along w/ a tip and it's just too cute! I hope it's a hit at our Scouts Pack mtg tonight!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turned out great! Turned out great! I was concerned about the icing dripping down the gaps, but I had enough icing to really give it a good, thick layer. It was really cute. I had my two boys help decorate (ages 6 and 7). Fun! They are taking it to school for a Halloween treat!

I made this for my sons Scout Halloween party and it was a hit, I did the hairline to resemble Frankenstein and made him a bit meaner looking. I can't wait to make the Ghost or Jack O' Lantern. It is such a great idea to use cupcakes.

I loved how easy this was to make- and the wow factor is pretty high among the under 5 crowd! I would definitely not waste your time making frosting. I used one container of a pre-made frosting and it was great.
