The easiest gravestone cupcakes you will ever make
Step 1: Ingredients
Cake mix Chocolate Graham Crackers Milano cookies Chocolate Icing Black Decorating Gel (ignore the candy corn that was for another project)
Step 2: Directions
Follow the directions on the back of your box Mix all ingredients into a bowl pour batter into paper cups 2/3 full Place into the oven and let bake when the timer goes off insert a tooth pick into the cupcakes. If it comes back clean they are done. If it does not bake for a few more minutes.
Remove from cupcakes from oven and let them cool in the pan for 5 minute Take them out and let them cool down completely otherwise your frosting will run. I let mine cool for an hour.
When the cupcakes are completely cooled you can frost them with your chocolate frosting. I used a bakers spatula to apply the frosting but you can use a knife as well Don't worry if it looks messy as you will be covering it up soon
Take your chocolate graham crackers in a blender and blend till they are fine Take your cupcake and dip it in the graham cracker crumbs till the entire top of the cupcake is covered do this for the rest of your cupcakes
Take your decorating gel and instead of cutting the top off use a safety pin and poke a hole in the top so you have a thinner stream coming out for writing Test your writing skills on a piece of paper towel to make sure you get the look you want before you start on your cookies Cut your Milano cookies in half so you have more tombstones to put on your cupcakes Write RIP as close to the top as you can and insert them into your cupcakes
