Sugar Skulls + Cupcakes

I have a serious love for cupcakes (gluten free, of course), and for Halloween. What better way to combine the two than with Sugar Skull Cupcake Toppers. I am a huge baby when it comes to scary things (think zombies, blood, monsters, bugs…yuck!) and prefer the cutesy, more fun Halloween elements (dressing up, candy, fun decorations.) Thats why I designed these colorful sugar skulls. They are festive, fun, happy and free to download below!

Supplies:
–Toothpicks
–Tape
–Thicker Paper
–Scissors
Printable Sugar Skulls (download here!)

They are super easy and quick to make (the skulls, that is. The cupcakes make take you a bit longer). Simply cut the skulls out around the light dotted line and fasten a toothpick to the back. Voila! Cupcake toppers.

I chose black and white cupcake tins to compliment the pastel orange frosting and colorful shapes of the skulls.

To get the pastel orange frosting, we added tiny amounts of red and yellow until we found the shade we liked.
