You will need two cupcake mixes to create this effect. You can use any colours and flavours you like – it will work the same way. I just really like this chocolate orange combination as the colours work well for Halloween and the flavour reminds me of autumn! Orange and purple or orange and green would both work really well too.
Once the cupcakes are cooled and the toppers have set overnight, it’s time to decorate! Start with your chosen buttercream. I’m using vanilla for these as I think it complements the other flavours nicely and will show off the orange stripes.
