Mouse-in-the-House Cupcakes by

Source: The Pampered Chef, Let's Eat


1 Pkg. (9 oz.) Devil's Food Cake Mix
1/2 C. Water
1 Egg
3/4 C. Vanilla Frosting
24 Vanilla Wafer Cookies
24 Candy-Coated Chocolate Pieces
12 Chocolate Kisses
Shoestring Licorice


1. Set the oven to 350 degrees. Put one paper liner in each cup of the cupcake pan.

2. Put the cake mix, water, and egg in a bowl. Mix according to the package directions. Using the large scoop, put one heaping scoop of batter into each muffin cup.

3. Bake the cupcakes for 15-18 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the middle of each cupcake comes out clean. Carefully remove the pan from the oven using the oven mitts and put it on the cooling rack. Let the cupcakes cool for five minutes, then remove them from the pan. Wait until the cupcakes are completely cool before you decorate them.

4. Spread the tops of the cupcakes with frosting. To make each mouse, put two vanilla wafer cookies for "ears," two candy-coated chocolate pieces for "eyes," one chocolate kiss for a "nose," and pieces of shoestring licorice for "whiskers."
