Preparation Time: 30 mins

Cook: 18 mins

Additional: 1 hrs 45 mins

Servings: 24


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil’s food cake mix (such as Duncan Hines®)
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ (16 ounce) packages prepared vanilla frosting
  • 1 (7 ounce) pouch prepared chocolate frosting


Step 1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners, preferable dark-colored or Halloween-themed ones.

Step 2.
Combine cake mix, water, eggs, and oil in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Beat at medium speed until batter is smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.

Step 3.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18 to 21 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool tins on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove cupcakes from the tins and cool completely on a wire rack before decorating, about 1 hour.

Step 4.
Frost each cupcake with a thin layer of white vanilla frosting and refrigerate for 30 minutes to make decorating easier.

Step 5.
Remove cupcakes from the fridge and apply a second layer of white frosting. Fill a piping bag outfitted with a small round tip with chocolate frosting and draw a skull face on the cupcakes: pipe large ovals for the eyes, two dots for the nostrils, and a large «stitched» smile for the mouth.
