First, make your favorite cupcake recipe. I chose to make some Chocolate Diet Coke Cupcakes. Some of my co-workers didn't know what that was. Just pick a boxed mix, and instead of any other ingredients (other than the powder), mix with a can of Diet Coke/Pepsi/Rite/etc. If you're making a lighter colored cake (like yellow), then use a Diet Sprite or other diet clear colored soda. Don't ask me why it works, but it does, and it cuts out oil, butter, eggs, etc. I was lacking those ingredients, so this worked out perfectly.
First - the face. You need an appropriate colored face depending on the country of origin for your pirate. We had a buttercream frosting, so I made white-ish pirates. It could happen.
For the eyes, choose an appropriate colored eye, and then a brown one for the patch. Some people use M&Ms and Junior Mints for the patch, I just used the M&Ms for both. The less ingredients, the better.
Finally, my favorite part - the stubble! Pirates just don't shave the way they used to, so grab some chocolate sprinkles and let your creativity shine through!
