Cupcakes are all the rage in the dessert arena. I know I love a good cupcake. These little guys make me feel a tad less guilty about indulging in a treat that goes straight to my butt. I mean it's not very big - how bad can it really be?
So, I declare that all Ghoulies whip up at least one batch this season - with a touch of Halloween flair of course.
The baking gurus over at Wilton whipped up these Haunted Mansion Cupcakes:

Take a bite out of these Vampire Cupcakes I found in the recent Shindigz catalog:
Shindigz gives us the easy how-to:
Vampire cupcakes, with red fang marks in the fronsting and oozing "blood" when the cupcake is bitten, are easy to make. Use a white cake mix and fill with cherry pie filling before baking, so that when the cake is bitten, a bloodlike substance will ooze out for maximum vampire effect. After your cupcakes have cooled, decorate the top with a layer of white frosting. On the frosting, draw two line with red food coloring to look like bloody fang marks that will certainly spook your guests.
