Cupcakes Ingredients

  • 24 cupcakes of choice (I prepared 1 box chocolate cake mix)
  • 12 Oreo sandwich cookies, separated
  • 1 tub orange frosting*
  • 1 tub purple or green frosting* (or 1 of each!)
  • black & orange sprinkles (optional)
  • 24 chocolate kisses
  • *I used premade tubs of orange, purple, and green frosting for ease and convenience. You can also create your own colors at home using white frosting + food coloring.

Decorating Equipment



  • Bake cupcakes in cupcake liners, according to package directions. (Or bake homemade cupcakes of choice.) Allow to cool completely.

Hat Toppers

  • 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.
  • Repeat to complete remaining witch hat cupcakes.
