Day of the Dead Cupcakes

Posted on

Make these colorful Day of the Dead Cupcakes this Halloween! They’re so much fun and so eye-catching. Sure to be the talk of the party!

Hey I hope you had a fantastic weekend!

We are officially DONE with fall baseball, and basketball doesn’t start for a few more weeks. It was pure bliss to be able to do whatever we wanted to do!

For the kids and husband, that means a variety of outdoor activities, alternated with plenty of video-game-playing and YouTube-video-watching. But for me, it was a rare opportunity do dive into something fun and artistic.


I’ve had day of the dead cupcakes on my mind for some time. I just love the bright colors and floral patterns that you always see in all the dia de los muertos imagery. Isn’t it beautiful?

I love it because it’s festive and fun, but still a little spooky at the same time. I’ll take pretty flowers over blood & guts any day!

I started out by just sketching around on paper to see what would look best. I even played around with colored pencils a bit! When I do this kind of decorating, I try to be mindful of not having to mix too many different colors. So this design uses just 3 colors plus black.
