Welcome to a delightful baking journey where the charm of black cats meets the warmth of homemade muffins. These black cat-themed muffins are not just a treat to your taste buds but also a feast for the eyes, perfect for themed parties, Halloween, or any day you need a sprinkle of joy. Here’s how you can create these bewitching treats in your own kitchen.


  • Your favorite chocolate muffin mix or recipe
  • Black food coloring (optional, for extra dark muffins)
  • Black fondant for the head and details
  • Peach or tan fondant for the ears
  • Edible gold paint or food coloring for the eyes


  • Muffin tin and liners
  • Rolling pin
  • Small sharp knife or fondant tools
  • Fine paintbrush (if using edible gold paint)


  1. Prepare the Muffin Batter:
    • Mix up your muffin batter according to the recipe. If you want an intense black color, add some black food coloring to the mix.
  2. Bake the Muffins:
    • Pour the batter into the muffin liners, filling them two-thirds of the way. Bake according to the recipe’s instructions, then let them cool completely before decorating.
  3. Create the Fondant Decorations:
    • While the muffins cool, roll out the black fondant and cut out circles for the cat’s face.
    • Shape small triangles from the peach or tan fondant for the ears. If you like, add a little pink fondant to the center of the ears for a touch of color.
  4. Decorate Your Muffins:
    • Place a black fondant circle on each muffin for the face.
    • Attach the ears by pressing them gently into the top of the black fondant.
    • Paint the eyes onto the fondant using edible gold paint or food coloring. A small dab of white can add a glint to the eyes.
  5. Add the Final Touches:
    • Use the remaining black fondant to roll out small pieces for the whiskers and nose. You can also use a small round cutter to create the cheeky blush spots.
    • With a fine paintbrush, add any additional details like the mouth or extra fur texture.

Baker’s Tips:

  • If the fondant is too stiff, knead it with a little bit of vegetable shortening until it’s pliable.
  • When painting on fondant, ensure the paint is not too wet to prevent the fondant from dissolving or getting soggy.
  • Keep the muffins in a cool place as fondant can melt or become sticky in warm environments.
