Continuing my theme of Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween party decorations and treats, I decided to make Oogie Boogie cupcakes! Believe it or not, it isn’t as much frosting as it looks, but still enough to give you a good sugar rush.

What you will need:

  • 1 box cake mix (and ingredients required on box)
  • White frosting
  • Green food coloring
  • Marshmallows
  • Black decorating frosting
  • Gummy worms!

I also found some excellent cupcake liners that were Halloween themed, but they certainly are not required to pull off the look.

Instructions

1. Bake your cupcakes according to the directions on the box. I also recommend doubling the cupcake liners if you have a fun design, as the design was not nearly as visible once baked. Let cupcakes cool on cooling rack completely.

2. In a small bowl, mix white frosting with green food coloring until you get it to the green color you desire. Scoop frosting into a frosting gun or cake decorating bag. I highly recommend a frosting gun. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby last year for just $15, and have used it so many times for different baking projects, totally worth the cost. It also is a lot easier to use than a cake decorating bag, so there is that too.

3. Cut a marshmallow in half, and place on the center of your cupcake. Then, using the smooth tip, frost around the marshmallow and top in a cone shape (think ice cream cone). Use a knife to smooth out the lines, but it doesn’t need to be perfect by any means, as oogie boogie does have natural wrinkles.

4. Finish off the face with the black decorating frosting, creating an open mouth and slit like eyes, using a picture for reference if preferred. Use the gummy worms for decorating around the cupcakes!

Also, my sister had a great idea once I was already done with the cupcakes, so I didn’t get a chance to try it, but think it could work well. Instead of using a marshmallow to pad up the frosting, you could curl up gummy worms, which would be just like Oogie Boogie’s real insides!

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • One last shot of Sallywise! This was a great test to see what I need to focus on more when timing my looks, and also to realize that a lot of the detail I like to include might not really matter in the harsh dim light of a haunted house. On to the next look! #sallystitches #nightmarebeforechristmas #clowns #pennywise
  • Breaking the Instagram square because this shirt is goals, and one of my all time favorite Halloween finds. It’s from SheIn, and is literally exactly how I would imagine Sally’s dress would be as a shirt. It’s super comfortable, and it even comes in plus sizes! I’m always looking for ways to bring Halloween esthetic to my work wear, and I’m beyond thrilled. Oh, and did I mention it is only $16?!?!!!

  • When you are feeling Nightmare Before Christmas but need to practice clowns.... you get Sallywise! 
I challenged myself to get this done as quickly as possible, and originally had my timer set for 20 minutes... this one took about 45 including time to put on the wig, so all in all, not terrible considering I sometimes take a lot longer. The one thing I wish I would have spent more time on is the foundation, which wasn't as opaque as I would have liked, but overall, I really like this one!

  • Pretty sure I will never quite learn how to stay serious... I seriously love this look so much! #colors #colorful #illgrowupsomday
  • The most beautiful thing about poetry is that the collection of words carries more emotion and meanings than the author may have ever intended. They shape these words into skeletons made of language that we flesh out with our emotions. It’s a living thing, always changing. Make sure to check out the poem that inspired this look on my last post! #poetry #artinspiration #myfavoritepoet #livingart

And suddenly
Your breath
Becomes violet
Clashing against
Rainbow soundwaves 
And that way crayons 
Leave broken trails
Of color

  • Fun fact: these paints really sting when they get in your eyes. I tried to get it as close to my waterline without actually getting it in my eyes... and I was not successful. Also, not sure I can take myself too seriously in any kind of clown makeup. #clowns #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #pumpkinmakeup #pumpkins #jackolantern #jackolanternmakeup #mehron
  • I'm going to be doing makeup for a haunted house this year, and when i asked what common requests were, I was informed that clowns are super popular. Until today, I have never yet done a clown... im actually not a huge fan, and I can completely see why clowns are great for terrifying haunt visitors. I've been in more of a pumpkin mood lately, and thought it would be a good way to ease myself into the concept. #clowns #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #pumpkinmakeup #pumpkins #jackolantern #jackolanternmakeup
  • They said there will be a lot of clowns, but I was feeling pumpkin vibes... and this was the result! I should go to bed, but I’m having too much fun to take this off just yet. 🎃Now for some spooky Netflix and popcorn, and pit bull snuggles on the couch. She’s giving me some side eye right now. #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #pumpkinmakeup #pumpkins #jackolantern #jackolanternmakeup
