Remove from the oven and allow to cool.Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before frosting.

Frosting Directions :

Using a standing mixer combine the butter, powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and mix on medium speed until combined and smooth. Set aside 1/2 Cup of frosting in 1 bowl and mix until combined with a few drops of the orange gel food coloring.

Set aside another 1/2 Cup of frosting in the 2nd bowl and leave this one white. Scoop the orange frosting onto one side of the piping bag. Scoop the white frosting onto the second side of the piping bag and set aside. Beat in the black gel food coloring into the remaining frosting

Decorating Directions :

Using the black frosting, scoop a small amount into the ice cream scooper and place onto the top of the cupcake and spread slightly into a thick disk.

Pour the Halloween sprinkles into a deep bowl Dip the top of the cupcake frosting into the sprinkles. Using the piping bag, pipe the orange and white frosting onto the top of the sprinkles.
