Apple Cinnamon Frankenstein Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Halloween is coming up and this year, I didn’t want to be late with my Halloween preppings. So starting with this recipe today, I think I’m right on schedule πŸ˜‰

As always, Pinterest is my favorite playground when it comes to finding inspiration for holidays. Halloween is no exeption. I found the cutest Frankenstein Cupcakes ever! And so I decided to try them. How do you like my little Frankenstein?


Some like it scary, some like it cute. I prefer the latter. My carved out pumpkins never scared anyone, I don’t have spiders or witches. I just bake Halloween treats xD

What do we needΒ (12 cupcakes):


  • 250 g sugar
  • 250 g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 250 g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • (optional) Black or Halloween cupcake wrappers
  • Cupcake tin
  • 1 apple, cut in small pieces
  • some extra sugar


  • 200 ml cream
  • 250 g mascarpone
  • +- 60 g icing sugar
  • green food colouring gel/paste
  • 2 piping bags
  • round piping tip
  • 24 brown m&m’s
  • melted white chocolate
  • chocolate strands

Aren’t they adorable? I must admit it is a little bit creepy to see them standing there, looking at you. Especially if you put them in the fridge, forget they’re in there and then open the fridge to get something. Aaarghh!!

Have a delicious day ❀
