  • when the timer goes off insert a tooth pick into the cupcakes. If it comes back clean they are done. If it does not bake for a few more minutes.

Step 3:

Picture of
  • Remove from cupcakes from oven and let them cool in the pan for 5 minute
  • Take them out and let them cool down completely otherwise your frosting will run. I let mine cool for an hour.

Step 4:

Picture of
  • When the cupcakes are completely cooled you can frost them with your chocolate frosting.
  • I used a bakers spatula to apply the frosting but you can use a knife as well
  • Don't worry if it looks messy as you will be covering it up soon

Step 5:

  • Take your chocolate graham crackers in a blender and blend till they are fine
  • Take your cupcake and dip it in the graham cracker crumbs till the entire top of the cupcake is covered
  • do this for the rest of your cupcakes

Step 6:

Picture of
  • Take your decorating gel and instead of cutting the top off use a safety pin and poke a hole in the top so you have a thinner stream coming out for writing
  • Test your writing skills on a piece of paper towel to make sure you get the look you want before you start on your cookies
  • Cut your Milano cookies in half so you have more tombstones to put on your cupcakes
  • Write RIP as close to the top as you can and insert them into your cupcakes
