These adorable spooky cupcakes not only look the ghoulish part, but there's more to them than meets the eye -- beneath the eerie, glowing gummy-candy eyes lies a cookie dough surprise secretly nestled inside the cakes. We're positively enchanted with these cupcakes not only for their appearance but for their complex flavor layers.
Borrowing from "The Cake Mix Doctor Returns," the folks at A Baked Creation whipped up these beastly beauties using a combination of vanilla cake and instant pudding mixes, with a package of frozen cookie dough for the center. And though many cooks scoff at the use of premixed baking bases, with creatively tweaked creations like these we can't resist the extra ease. Plus, we were sold at the mere sight of the fondant ghosts floating atop the fluffy chocolate frosting.
