Bake some of your favorite cupcakes. Then whip up some frosting. (This is my go-to recipe. If you don't want to use a vanilla bean, you can either leave it out or substitute another teaspoon of vanilla extract.) If that's too much hassle, I won't tell if you use frosting from a can.
Color small batches of frosting with food coloring to make the veins and spider webs. Pipe the frosting from a sandwich bag with the corner cut off. Use either M&M's or Skittles for the eyes and spiders. I used sprinkles as the spider webs.
The witches were really fun to make! (And yes, these pictures are from before I learned about food styling.) Color frosting light green for the face. I then piped purple frosting on for the hair. The eyes are chocolate chips and the nose is a piece of candy corn. Pop on an ice cream cone for the witch's hat and you're ready too boogie.
