Floating Ghost Cupcakes Recipe & How-to:
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- Canned Chocolate Frosting
- 1 sleeve Oreos, crushed
- 1 package white fondant
- 1 package black fondant
- small suckers suckers
- Decorative gravestones
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners and set aside.
- Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl until combined.
- In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla together until smooth.
- Pour half of the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
- Stir in half of the buttermilk gently then repeat with the remaining wet ingredients and buttermilk. Stir until just combined; do not over mix. The batter will be thin.
- Pour or spoon the batter into the liners to the halfway point to avoid spilling over the sides, then bake for 18-21 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
- When the cupcakes are cool, spoon the frosting into a microwave-safe container and melt for 15-10 seconds, or until it’s melted and thick. Dip each cupcake top into the frosting and allow to set for a few minutes, then sprinkle with crushed Oreos.
- Roll out the white fondant on waxed paper to a ? inch thickness. Using a glass with a 3-inch opening, punch out rounds in the fondant.
- Place a sucker in the middle of each round and let the fondant drape over it, shaping the fondant by hand into a ghost, then stick into the middle of a cupcake.
- Pinch a tiny piece of the black fondant and roll to make eyes, then gently press onto each ghost. Place a gravestone beside each ghost on the cupcake and enjoy!
