Feeling like the other treats are too simple or cute for you? Do you prefer to show off your baking skills to impressing your friends? This devilish treat is sure to have your friends wondering if you’re a pastry chef. All you have to do is bake the cupcakes, add the frosting of your choice, and top it off with a little devil and a candle. To make the devil, you’ll need two red gumdrops, red licorice for his arms and tails, black licorice for his devil horns and beard, and black sprinkles for his eyes.
