Last year I got Martha Stewart Kids magazine at Halloween time and they had these great cupcakes that I just had to try. I made them again this year and I think these turned out much cooler. The homemade frosting is the bomb as well.
Here's an example:

I used Red Velvet for the cupcakes, dark chocolate M&M's, gumdrops, gummy worms, Good & Plentys, strawberry whips, marshmallows, chocolate chips (whole and melted), black sprinkles and gel frosting. I halved the frosting recipe and still ended up with way too much frosting for 24 cupcakes- when I made it last year I had 3 tupperware tubs full of frosting and had to throw most of it away! I didn't eat any of these but my husband's co-workers tell me they were delicious!
