Mummified Muffins!

OK, they are really cupcakes but how fun are these! You don't need to be a pro to make these either and they take no time at all. I whipped these up this afternoon as I was making supper.

What you will need:
1 cake mix (along with the ingredients listed on the box)
1 tub of white icing
Paper cupcake liners
Candy for the eyes (I happened to have a box of Wonka Runts handy)
Pastry bag with a flat tip (I used Wilton #47)
If you don't have a pastry bag or tips, you can definitely improvise and just use a plastic sandwich bag filled with icing. Snip off a small bit of one corner of the bottom of the baggy after you have filled it and voila, you have yourself a piping bag.

Bake cupcakes according to the instructions on the box. Let cool completely before icing. All I did was messily pipe icing into crisscross, haphazard strips leaving bare spot for the eyes and mouth. Adorn your spooky mummy cupcake with some candy for eyes and you are done! The whole family will love them! In this Goodbyn lunch I packed for my 9 year old son we have a thermos of chicken noodle soup, water container, strawberries, grapes, cheese round, yogurt drink, pretzels, dill pickles and a Mummy Muffin.
