Hosting a Halloween party this year? Create a festive candy corn push pop display of Halloween cupcakes for your celebration!

Candy-Corn-Push-Pop-Halloween-Cupcakes-Crafts-UnleashedEvery year we host a Halloween party for family and friends. It’s one of our favorite traditions! Some years we keep it simple with just our parents and others we have a big celebration! Since it’s become a yearly tradition, I like to try new decorating and party themes every year. This year I thought it might be fun to display candy corn push pop Halloween cupcakes on our dessert table. I used marabou boas to wrap a container, then added Styrofoam inside. Don’t you love boas? They’re messy but so fun to decorate with for Halloween.

Supplies used to make your own push pop Halloween cupcakes:

To start: prepare your favorite white cake recipe, then divide the batter in half. Dye your batter with orange and yellow food coloring (I used about 3-4 drops for the orange and 2 for the yellow). Preheat oven to 350 degrees and fill your cake mix into two prepared 8 or 9 inch pans. The bigger the pan the thinner the cake layers will be. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cake to fully cool. It’s important to have a cooled cake to prevent it from crumbling in the next step.

Cover your pail with one marabou boa. After I added the push pops I covered the top of the pail with half a boa by working around the pops.

Also, add your ribbon before you assemble the cake pops. Trust me, it’s easier and less messy that way. :)
