  • Cupcakes – We used cupcakes made from boxed mix but you can also get out the mixer and use your favorite homemade vanilla cupcakes or chocolate cupcakes recipe. Black cupcake liners go perfectly with the witch hat theme.
  • Ice cream conespointy sugar cones make the perfect witch hat.

  • Green food dye – I recommend a gel-based food coloring that won’t water down the frosting, such as this one.
