Halloween Birthday Cupcakes

My birthday is Halloween and this year I decided it would be great fun to bake and decorate some cupcakes with my 4 year old son that is still in disbelief that I am actually cool enough to be born on Halloween! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

We used a chocolate boxed cake and some cream cheese frosting that we colored green with gel food coloring, added peeps, candy corn pumkins, and witches hats that came with the cupcake liners from the dollar store.

Simple, easy, and great fun.  Probably my favorite birthday present this year was just spending time with him and decorating these together.
