Monster Cupcake Ideas

Monster Cupcake Supplies

I took the easy road and made the cupcakes from a mix and used store bought frosting.  I used gel food coloring to get the vibrant frosting colors I wanted.  For decorations, we used a variety of candies, marshmallows, nuts, and other supplies on hand.  To maximize the candy decor options, I hit up the local Winco bulk foods section and ended up with the following candies:

  • Good and Plenty
  • Fruit Slices
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Mike and Ike
  • Pull and Peel Licroice
  • Gummy Life Savers
  • Candy Corn
  • Yogurt Covered Raisins
  • Chocolate Candy Coated Sunflower Seeds
  • Jelly Beans
  • Licorice Mix
  • Sour Punch Straws
  • Mini M&M’s
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Sprinkles
  • Food Coloring Markers
  • Black Frosting

If you’re ever looking for a unique selection of candy in all size, shapes and colors, check out CandyWarehouse.com.  Another great place to find candy online is Amazon.com.

I couldn’t narrow down my favorite cupcakes for a close-up, so I decided to share them all!

Monster Cupcake Display Stand

These cupcakes were pretty much too cute to eat.  I displayed the cupcakes using a Wilton cupcake stand.  I’ve had so much decorating cupcake lately that I think I will get a lot of mileage out of this stand.
