How to Make Witch Hat Cupcakes

I’m sure you’ve all seen the cute cookie witch hats before, right? My mom used to make these years ago, so I know they aren’t anything new – but today I wanted to show you how cute they look as toppers for some cupcakes.

I am always on the hunt for easy baking ideas that my kids can help with, and these cupcakes are hard to mess up. We made these Witch Hat Cupcakes last Halloween and my kids absolutely LOVED helping! They are simple to assemble and they sure look adorable… don’t you agree?

These witch hat cupcakes make the perfect treat for a class Halloween party- especially if your school has a “no homemade treats” policy like my daughter’s preschool has. There is nothing homemade about these – so take the ingredients out of their packaging and let the kids start decorating some darling witch hat cupcakes!

Here are a few more Halloween Treats we LOVE-
