This fun Halloween cupcake has three different components-the dirt, the skeleton hand and the gravestone.

I was inspired by a product I saw on Amazon-a plastic skeleton hand shaped pick and I thought wow- I can make that hand edible and use something tasty for the gravestone.

Step 1: Ingredients

Your favorite cupcakes
Your favorite chocolate frosting
Nabisco chocolate wafers (or Oreo cookies if you prefer)/ mine are already crushed in the picture
White candy melts (I prefer  Wilton brand)
Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies (I also tried  Fig Newton's)

Special equipment or other stuff you might need:
#3 pastry tip and coupler
Pastry bag and/or freezer Ziploc bag
Wax paper
Squeeze bottle
Rolling pin or hammer
Microwavable container like a glass measuring cup

Very nice! I wanted to use a squeeze bottle too, but couldn't find one.
