Hosting a Halloween party this year or need a cute and easy treat idea? These Cauldron Cupcakes are perfect for parties and easy to make with kids.
Witches, goblins and ghosts, oh my! Halloween season is upon us and it’s completely taken over our home. Last weekend the kids tried on their new Halloween pajamas, had a Halloween movie marathon, and we made spooky treats to share with you guys. I’ve been traveling so much over the past month that it’s been hard to enjoy the season before we move onto Christmas. Moments like these help slow down time and savor the season. We’re keeping things simple this fall with a few pumpkins and maybe a little handmade décor from the kids. I don’t think we’ll fully decorate for Halloween this year, but that’s ok. Keeping things simple has always been my motto and I’m ok with scaling back this Halloween season. What there will be an abundance of are Halloween treats! Today I’m sharing these Cauldron Cupcakes that are really easy to make.

How to make Cauldron Cupcakes
Edible candy bones, bats and eyeballs
Mini pretzel sticks
Step one: Prepare your cake mix according to package directions. Bake cupcakes in a cupcake pan lined with cupcake wrappers. Allow cupcakes to cool completely.
Step two: Place cupcake inside silicone cauldron.
Step three: Pipe frosting on cupcake, slightly press the back of a spoon to help create a messy bubbling cauldron look.
Step four: add candy pearls, eyes, bats and bones. Place a small pretzel stick inside the cupcake to add a stirring stick.
My kids LOVED the cauldron cupcakes! Wouldn’t these make a great treat for a Halloween party?

Hi Sandy, I found them at Michaels in their Halloween baking section! :)
I know you found at Michaels, but what is the brand and name of the cauldrons? Trying to find online. Thanks!
LOVE these! I found everything to make them (including the cauldrons from Michaels) except the bone sprinkles. I found a few but they look tiny compared to the ones you have. Where did you purchase your bone sprinkles? Thanks!!
I am completely in love with your blog! I feel like we have very similar style with baking and decorating. I’ve made similar cauldron cupcakes for my Halloween party but I love the addition of the little bats and bones!
Is there a brand name on the cauldrons? I went to my local Michaels and they didn’t have them. I was going to see if I could order them. My son is getting married on St. Patrick’s day and thought those would be great cupcakes made into pots of gold for the shower. Thanks
Love this idea! But I’ve looked for the silicone cauldrons and been unable to find them – could you perhaps send the exact link to them? Would love to make these for halloween for the littl’uns, they’re gorgeous!
Thank you – love your blog!
I absolutely love these! They’re perfect for my son’s preschool class – thanks for sharing! I tried looking on michaels . com and Googled the silicone cauldrons and I can’t seem to find them anywhere!
Those cupcakes are so cute! Can’t wait to feature them on my Friday Five list tomorrow!
What did you use to make the frosting green?
Hi! My son is having a Harry potter birthday party and I bought these molds during Halloween. This is perfect! Can I just bake the batter directly in the cauldron instead of separately?
Can you share the link with us. I know you bought them at Michaels but I can’t find them! And how do you get them out of the mold? Are the silicone molds sold individually?
I meant to say the cauldron cupcakes. As you can see In a newbie! I found you on Pinterest
Hello! I absolutely love your cauldron cupcakes! I was wondering where I could find the silicone cauldrons?
