All you’ll need for these cupcakes is Betty Crocker’s red velvet cupcake mix (Yes I cheated, but these are all about the decoration :p) So follow the easy step by step instructions on the cake mix box before decorating with the marshmallow frosting.

Now for decoration (Marshmallow frosting):

4 eggs whites

250g caster sugar

60ml water

1tsp vanilla extract

Black icing pen


Step 1) In a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water whisk together the egg whites, sugar and water for 10-15 minutes until thick and glossy. Leave to cool before adding the vanilla extract and giving a final whisk before spooning into a piping bag.

Step2) When piping onto the cupcakes, do it as if it was a snow man in three squeezes to create the layers and look like a ghost. No need to wait for the frosting to set before icing on the eyes and mouths as it’s quite firm like a marshmallow.

Once iced they are ready for you to enjoy!
