24cupcakes of choice(I prepared 1 box chocolate cake mix)
Bake cupcakes in cupcake liners, according to package directions. (Or bake homemade cupcakes of choice.) Allow to cool completely.
Separate Oreo cookies from the crème, so you’ve got 24 individual cookies.
Add orange frosting into a decorating bag with a metal piping tip. (I used a Wilton open star tip #199. The metal tip is optional here, but I prefer to use it.)
Pipe a dollop of orange frosting onto the top of an Oreo cookie. Add sprinkles if desired, then press a chocolate kiss on top.
Repeat to create 24 witch’s hat toppers.
Frosting & Assembly
Add purple or green frosting into a decorating bag with a metal piping tip. (I used a Wilton open star tip #1m.) Or, use 2 separated ecorating bags if you want to use 2 different colors on your cupcakes.
Pipe frosting onto cupcake in a spiral pattern, starting from the outside and circling inward to create a dollop.
Place a prepared Oreo cookie hat topper on top of the frosting, pressing gently so it sticks.
