    DeniseBC's Note:

    I needed something cute for our fall festival cakewalk at church this weekend and I found this recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens publication "Halloween tricks & treats". It was really easy; the hardest part was picking the orange and black M&M's out of the M&M's GHOUL'S Milk Chocolate Mix. If you live in a bigger city or can order online, you can probably order just orange and black ones to make this easier yet!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 26



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box devil's food cake mix
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup canola oil
    • 2 (16 ounce) cans vanilla frosting
    • orange food coloring (I used red and yellow per my packaging's instructions)
    • 1 cup M&M' (black)
    • 2 cups M&M's (orange)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350. Line 26 cupcake cups with paper liners.
    2. 2
      Beat the cake mix with the eggs, buttermilk and oil until blended. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cupcake pans.
    3. 3
      Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
    4. 4
      Tint the vanilla frosting with the orange food coloring. Line the cupcakes snugly into a large pumpkin shape on a large plate or a piece of cardboard covered in foil. Follow this pattern-one row of 4 cupcakes, one row of 5, one row of 6, another of 5, another of 4. This leaves 2 cupcakes to be placed at the pumpkin's top for a stem.
    5. 5
      Spread orange frosting over the cupcakes, covering them completely so they look like one big cake. Use black M&M's to outline the pumpkin, and to make the eyes, mouth and nose. Fill in the remaining area of the pumpkin with orange M&M's.

      This was so cute! I forgot the buttermilk, so I made the box recipe, and they were still wonderful. I couldn't find orange M&Ms (found black), so I used Reese's Pieces instead of M&Ms and the taste was fantastic. Finally, I only made 24 cupcakes, so I arranged them a little differently, using 3 on the bottom, 4 next, and then followed the arrangement listed. Since I absolutely stink at frosting, I was glad to find something that didn't require that, although I way underestimated the amount of time it would take. It was well worth it though. Thank you for sharing!
