We have a very special treat just for Maleficent fans!! Celebrate our favorite “bad girl” with Maleficent Cupcakes decorated with her signature horns. To make the cupcakes you can use any type of cupcake (we prefer devil’s food since they are so dark – but any flavor works) frosted with black frosting. Then you just need to make the horns using melting chocolate. Here’s how:
Maleficent Cupcakes with Horns
Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in 20-second bursts, stirring in between until completely melted. Transfer chocolate to a piping bag and cut a small hole at the tip.
On the wax paper, pipe out the shape of the horns, if needed you can print out an image of Maleficent and place it under the wax paper as a guide. You can use these free printable Maleficent activity sheets to guide you. The thicker you make the horns, the less likely they are to break when removing them from the wax paper.
Carefully place horns into the refrigerator to set (about 10 minutes). Remove chocolate horns and place them atop of each cupcake.
