Watch out! These aren’t your ordinary pumpkins, these pumpkins BITE! We adore this seasonal project that you and the kiddos can make and enjoy together!

orange supreme or spice cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)|
candy eyes
purple Skittles or black candy (for eyes)
white tic tacs or mini marshmallows (for teeth)
Tootsie Rolls (for stem)
icing (you can tint orange or purchase ready-made)
cupcake liners

Prepare and bake cupcakes in liners as directed on box, let cool. Stir store-bought icing vigorously in the container, set aside. Remove liners from cupcakes. Spoon a generous dollop of icing on the top of a cupcake and place another cupcake, upside down, on top, pressing slightly to ensure you see the icing. Press tic tacs or halved mini marshmallows into the icing for teeth. Affix eyes with a bit of icing. Gently push Tootsie Roll in the top for the stem!
