Hocus Pocus Cupcakes

Make these Sanderson Sisters
cupcakes for your next
Hocus Pocus party!

Cupcake Ingredients:

1 white cake (or strawberry) mix
eggs, oil, and water (check cake mix box for quantities)
pink food coloring (not needed if using a strawberry cake mix)
red paper cupcake liners (for Mary)
green paper cupcake liners (for Winifred)
purple paper cupcake liners (for Sarah)
red sprinkles (jimmies)
black dot sprinkles
large red round sprinkles (or hearts)

Cupcake Directions:

Mix cake batter according to directions on back of cake mix box. Mix in a tiny bit of food coloring to get a pale pink. Spoon batter into cupcake pan lined with the paper liners and bake for 18 minutes at 350ยบ. Let cool completely (preferably overnight).


Frosting Ingredients:

1 cup all vegetable shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
pink food coloring
purple food coloring
orange food coloring
yellow food coloring

Frosting Directions:

Place shortening and butter into a large mixing bowl. Add vanilla. Blend on high with an electric mixer until nice and creamy. Add in powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each cup has been added. Mixture will be dry and crumbly. Add in milk and mix again on high until it is thick and creamy.

Spoon frosting into 4 bowls. Tint 1 bowl pink, another purple, another orange, and the last bowl yellow.

Spoon each colored frosting into a cake decorating bag fitted with these tips:

pink - Wilton #12 round tip
purple - Wilton #12 round tip
yellow - Wilton #46 striped ribbon tip
orange - Wilton #21 star tip

Make a flat swirl of pink on top of each cupcake then follow the directions for these colored liners:

Red - make a tall towering swirl with the purple icing
Purple - make long strands of hair with the yellow icing
Green - make two piles of small swirls with the orange icing

(It's best to watch the video to see how the above steps are done.)

Now it's time to add the mouths:

Add 2 red sprinkles (jimmies) for Mary's mouth.
Add 1 red sprinkle and 1 black dot for Sarah's mouth and mole.
Add 1 large red dot (or heart) for Winifred's mouth.

That's it! You're done! Now you can run AMUCK! AMUCK! AMUCK!
