Not everyone is into a creepy Halloween, though, so I decided to make a tamer version of these clawed cupcakes, too. Seriously, cutest deadly monster claws ever.

Clawed Cupcakes How to by Bakingdom

To give the creepy cupcakes the clawed effect on top, I frosted them normally, using a large round tip. You can ice these with a small spatula, or any tip you like. Once frosted, I dragged the handle of a small spoon through the frosting in four parallel lines. To finish up, I tinted a small amount of frosting very red, then used a small paint brush to paint the red frosting onto the claw marks. This technique also added a jagged, torn-looking texture that made the claw marks more realistic. Once each cupcake was painted, I added the claws.

Fondant Claws How-to by Bakingdom

To make the claws, I used homemade marshmallow fondant (but store-bought works beautifully, too, as does marzipan). Each claw started out as a small ball weighing 3 grams. I shaped each ball into an elongated teardrop. Finally, I simply curved each teardrop down to create a claw shape.

For the creepy cupcakes, I also added a bit more of the red frosting to the tips of the claws to make them even scarier.

Even though I’m totally creeped out by them, I think these turned out fantastic! I guess the fact that I am totally creeped out by them is proof of how great they are. These would be perfect for an older kid Halloween party, and excellent for adults. I really think little kids would find them freaking cool, too, but that’s more of a parental discretion type thing. 😉

These fuzzy, monster cupcakes are just as fun, and a lot more tame, though, so if you’re not into a gory Halloween, these are perfect. To make them, I simply used a grass tip to give them ‘fur’, then i added the same claws that I used on the creepy cuppies.


Whether you go for scary or silly, both versions are fast and easy to make. You could have these decorated for a party in less than an hour (baking times not included).
