Halloween is just around the corner and if you need a spooky and delicious treat, these Cauldron Cupcakes are perfect. I used a red velvet cake recipe as the base and added black food coloring. When I think of witches and cauldrons, the color lime green is my favorite; so what better way to make a bubbling cauldron than with lime green frosting.

My little one is going to be a purple witch this year. We usually have big cauldrons to hold all the candy for the trick-or-treaters. When I was a kid, my parents always bought dry ice and we would set it up in a cauldron outside, have some spooky music playing, and my mom would be a witch every year. We don't do many gory decorations for Halloween so these cupcakes are the perfect treat for everyone!

You can definitely adjust the amount of food coloring, depending on how bright green you want your frosting. Same with the cupcakes. I used a little bit of black coloring, but you can use more if you really want it dark. Candy eyes, green sprinkles, and candy bones are the perfect topping for these fun Halloween cupcakes
