How to Make Bone Appetit Halloween Cupcakes

I love a good play on words, so I am definitely getting a kick out of “bone” appetit, in place of “bon appetit” . I mean, it’s just too easy! πŸ˜‰ Fortunately, so are these fun Halloween cupcakes! πŸ˜‰

Bake up your favorite cupcake recipe…boxed, homemade…it doesn’t matter.  In fact, you can even have your local grocery store bakery whip some up for you, just asked for them unfrosted…did you know you can do that?  It’s one of my favorite time savers! πŸ˜‰  I found these adorable bone shaped sprinkles at Hobby Lobby in their Halloween section and I just knew they would be the perfect thing to go with our Halloween cupcake toppers.  Here are some bone shaped sprinkles that are exactly like the ones used in this post if you can’t find them at HL.

Using a sharp knife, cut a circle out of the top of your cupcake, making the hole about 2/3 of the way down in the cupcake.

Remove the section of cupcake, keeping it in tact, because you will need to replace it in a minute.

Fill the hole with your bone shaped sprinkles.

Replace the portion of the cupcake you removed from the hole, on top of the sprinkles.  You may need to trim some of the cake off in order for it to fit back into the cupcake.

Frost your cake.  I like to use this buttercream recipe, these paste frosting colors, and these large frosting tips.  I use them SO much.  It is the easiest way to frost a cupcake and it looks pretty professional if you ask me.  Move over Albertsons. πŸ˜‰

Add one of our free printable Halloween Bone Appetit cupcake toppers and you’re all set!  I added my toppers to straws like these instead of traditional white lollipop sticks just to make them even a little more fun for Halloween.

It’s so fun to watch people eat these Halloween cupcakes when they have no idea they are filled!

Those little bones remind me of the ones from the game Operation.  I used to LOVE that game when I was little.  Did you ever play?
