Witch & Cauldron Cupcakes

This year I vowed to make more goodies as I am learning how to make homemade treats for the kids. A little over a year ago, my youngest son challenged me to make him a homemade birthday cake with the whipped topping. Challenge accepted. I discovered that it was fun and something that I enjoyed. I’ve always wanted to be able to do it but never tried until he challenged me.

As I am learning how to make treats and goodies, I figured that I would share them with you. Because if I can do it, so can you. So without further ado, here are my Witch & Cauldron cupcakes.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Box of Halloween Funfetti Cake Mix
  • Witch’s Feet and Cauldron Cupcake liners and toppers – Walmart Sold Out Quickly. These are similar: (aff link)
  • 1 Jar of Wilton Black Icing Color
  • Vanilla Flavoring (clear works best for light-colored icing)
  • Powdered Sugar

For Buttercream Icing:

You will need two sticks of butter. I shared the recipe here.

For Whipped Icing:

You will need 1 small carton of heavy whipping cream, agar-agar (recipe here) or unflavored gelatin (recipe here) to stabilize the icing. I haven’t shared this recipe on the blog yet but I will get to it soon since I didn’t take the process photos.


  • Make cupcakes according to the package and allow them to cool completely before frosting them.
  • While your cupcakes are baking, begin making your icing and use the recipes above.
  • Once cupcakes are cooled, spoon the frosting into a piping bag.
  • Add the desired tip and pipe the icing onto your cupcake.
  • Top with the witch’s feet and cauldron cupcake toppers.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
