Fit a pastry bag with a plain round tip (or use a plastic bag with a corner snipped off). Fill bag with Cool Whip. Pipe cream into peaks on each cupcake.
Position two mini chocolate chips as eyes and one regular chocolate chip as a mouth on each ghost, flat ends facing out. (Cupcakes may be refrigerated for up to 3 hours. Bring to room temperature before decorating.)
I agree that this is a good recipe for a 64 year old male beginner to experiment with. As my mother used to say, no mistake is so bad that a little extra dab of frosting can't cure. I also agree with the others about Iridos, sounds like he or she has a big chip (no pun intended) on there shoulder
