Step by Step Method

For the Cupcakes:

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Step 4

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Step 5

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Step 6

Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each about two-thirds full.

Step 7

Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 8

Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.

For the Blue Moon Frosting:

Step 9

In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy.

Step 10

Gradually add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.

Step 11

Add milk, one tablespoon at a time, until the frosting reaches your desired consistency.

Step 12

Stir in a few drops of blue gel food coloring to create a spooky blue moon color.

Step 13

Fill a piping bag fitted with a star tip (or a plastic zipper bag with a corner snipped off) with the frosting.

For the Werewolf Ears:

Step 14

Separate the round chocolate cookies, carefully removing the cream filling.

Step 15

Cut each cookie in half to create the werewolf ears.

Step 16

Using a small dab of frosting, attach a mini marshmallow to the center of each cookie half, creating the inner ear.


Step 17

Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, pipe the blue moon frosting onto each cupcake, creating a swirl or any desired design.

Step 18

Gently press two werewolf ears into the frosting on top of each cupcake.

Step 19

Serve and enjoy these Blue Moon Howling Wolfman Cupcakes with a delightful werewolf touch!
