Eyeball Halloween Cupcakes

To make the eyeballs, you’re still starting out baking the cupcake flavor of your choice and icing like normal. I had found these eye candies in my local Michaels store.

They actually had a lot of really cute baking decorations this year, so naturally I cant wait to see what’s in store next year! When icing my cupcakes for this decoration, I add a little more icing in the middle to keep the eye in place.
