The Roger

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Happy Halloween! Oh right… Halloween is way over. Okay how about HAPPY RAGECAKES UPDATE DAY!

I’ll let you guys take a wild guess as to when the cupcakes in this post were made. *Not so subtle hint – it was Halloween.* The post is a little overdue, as all of my posts are. These cupcakes, however, are at least mildly ragey! No small candies are being decapitated or stabbed to death, but skulls and bones are still pretty on par with my ragey ways. This is actually the first ragey cupcake to make it onto RageCakes! I’m a little ashamed.

These I affectionately call “The Roger.”

As you can see from the above picture, not only do the cupcakes have skulls, but I also have a skull that hangs out in my apartment with me. His name is Roger and he is the naming inspiration for these cupcakes. Roger has been hanging out with me for about 10 years now. I named him primarily after Roger Manganelli, the bassist for Less Than Jake, but it worked out too because of the big Jolly Roger flag I used to have hanging on my wall. Naming my skull Roger just seemed to be the right choice at that time.

These cupcakes are a white cake with white chocolate chips, topped with a pumpkin butter cream. I didn’t do a stellar job with the frosting for these. I just did straight butter cream with pumpkin whipped into it. I realized after I really should have spiced it up a little. The next time the Roger makes an appearance I’ll play some more.

I’m always on the lookout for fun sprinkles and candies to use with my cupcakes. Unfortunately “ragey” items appear rarely, so when I saw the little bone sprinkles and the skull and crossbones candies I knew I had to buy them and use them on cupcakes.

If anyone knows of any great places to buy fun and ragey cupcake decorations please let me know!
