Take my cat cupcakes. You can pre-cut the licorice for the kids and just show them a completed cupcake, then let the kids go to work.
My eyeball cupcakes are especially fun for older kids. They'll love playing with the gel icing and the spooky effect.
Try all of these cupcake ideas and be sure to post reviews.
