Magnificent Maleficent Cupcakes for Your Next Movie Night!

by Crafting in the Rain on May 28, 2014

Hey there Disney Fans, Steph from Crafting in the Rain here today. Who says only princesses get to have all the fun, right? With the upcoming movie Maleficent, I just knew I had to do something to celebrate the film to share with you. Hence, these Maleficent cupcakes!

Maleficent cupcakes

They’re super easy, but you can totally tell what they’re supposed to be, right?


  • Cupcakes (I used chocolate, baked in purple liners)
  • Frosting (I used this frosting recipe from Our Best Bites and added a few drops of mint flavor and 3 drops green food color)
  • Black candy melts
  • Maleficent horn pattern, printed
  • Wax paper
  • Sandwich bag
  • Toothpicks

Maleficent cupcakes

While cupcakes are baking, print out the horn pattern and place a piece of wax paper over the top. Melt some black candy in the microwave and pour into a sandwich bag with a tiny bit of one corner cut off.  Squeeze some of the candy onto the wax paper and spread it around with a toothpick, filling the pattern. Try to work quickly so it doesn’t set up on you. Let cool. (Make a few more than you think you need in case some break.)

When cupcakes have cooled, frost them and top each one with a candy horn piece that you’ve peeled off of the wax paper.

So are you excited for the movie too? Wouldn’t Maleficent cupcakes be perfect for a movie night party, or save it up for Halloween?

These would be just perfect to celebrate the debut. I can't wait to see the movie!

I like that you added a little mint flavor. The horns came out great too. =0)

Thanks Kim! And I'm excited to see the movie too!

You are so talented! This are such a fun idea for a cupcake. I am not sure mine would turn out so nice.

Aw thanks Meredith! They're really not tricky...and just make a few more than you think you'll need. I did, and it was a good thing because some of the tips broke off!
