I had scary experiences using a Ouija board in my teen years and will never use one again, but I was not afraid of making these Ouija Cupcakes for Halloween. It was actually fun putting them together. I used Ina Garten's Devil's Food recipe as shared by Food52 (link below) and the Buttercream recipe is from Wilton (also used in my Pumpkin Cupcakes and Brain Cupcakes). The Ouija designs are printed on wafer paper. To assemble the Ouija toppers, I used a toothpick and then dipped a brush into light corn syrup pressing two sides of the same design while gently adhering it into the top of a toothpick. I let the toppers dry for an hour and then inserted each one into the center of a cupcake. I put the cupcakes in the fridge to set for 2-3 hours. These look super cool and are great for Halloween.
