Too Tired to Try Tuesday: Scarecrow Cupcakes


I found these adorable scarecrow cupcakes from My Own Ideas and just had to share. Not only are cupcakes delicious, but these look like they’d be a lot of fun to make with the kiddos. And, perfect for Halloween!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Ingredients to make cupcakes — either a box mix or your favorite recipe from scratch
  • Icing (My Own Ideas suggests a nice buttercream icing)
  • Suggested decorations: Orange slices candy, M&Ms, Fiber One cereal or egg noodles, cinnamon or chocolate graham crackers, candy corns

Then you bake and decorate! And the beauty of this is that you and your kiddos and personalize these however you want. Each cupcake will be 100% unique.

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!

I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at raisingwildthingsblog@gmail.com with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
