Witches' broomsticks mini cupcakes

Yields about 24 cupcakes


  • 1/2 box white cake mix
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 pretzel rods cut in half
  • White icing in a can
  • Gold sprinkles
  • Black icing gel


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the cake mix, egg whites, water and canola oil. Fill each of the mini muffin tins 3/4 the way full with mix. Bake for about 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  3. Let cool on a wire cooling rack until cool.
  4. Once cool, stick the pretzels into the mini cupcakes. Using the icing, start icing the pretzel rods about 1/3 way down and paint the top of the mini cupcake (so it looks like the broom's tassels.) Paint a black circle around the pretzel rod just above the top of the icing.
  5. Sprinkle the white icing with gold sprinkles.
