  • 1 package Chocolate┬ácake mix
  • Cream cheese frosting You can use the store-bought kind or make it yourself with our Best Cream Cheese Icing recipe
  • 1 package Candy eyes

Pots and Utensils

  • Muffin/cupcake tins
  • Muffin cups
  • Piping bag or ziploc bag with a hole cut in one corner



  • Line the cupcake tins with the muffin cups.
  • Mix the cake batter as directed on the package (or make your favorite chocolate cake recipe if you are so inclined)
  • Equally divide the batter into the muffin tins.
  • Follow the instructions on the package for baking the cupcakes.
  • Let cool completely on a cake rack.


  • For this recipe the┬ápiping bag (or ziploc bag with a hole cut in one corner) is kind of necessary. It's hard to get enough height on the icing if you are just scooping it on with a spoon.
  • Fill the bag with frosting and seal the open end do this with a piping bag, twist the end a couple of times. For the ziploc bag, just zip it shut.
  • Pipe the frosting on to the tops of the cupcakes. Start at the outside edge of the cupcake and go around in circles toward the middle until you have covered it (kind of like you would if you were serving a soft ice cream cone)
  • Finally, stick two candy eyes on to the top of the cupcakes
