Creepy Cupcakes

Cupcakes are all the rage in the dessert arena. I know I love a good cupcake. These little guys make me feel a tad less guilty about indulging in a treat that goes straight to my butt. I mean it's not very big - how bad can it really be?

So, I declare that all Ghoulies whip up at least one batch this season - with a touch of Halloween flair of course.

The baking gurus over at Wilton whipped up these Haunted Mansion Cupcakes:

Zombies will come off a bit sweeter when they eat these Brain Cupcakes courtesy of Family Fun:

Take a bite out of these Vampire Cupcakes I found in the recent Shindigz catalog:

Shindigz gives us the easy how-to:

Vampire cupcakes, with red fang marks in the fronsting and oozing "blood" when the cupcake is bitten, are easy to make. Use a white cake mix and fill with cherry pie filling before baking, so that when the cake is bitten, a bloodlike substance will ooze out for maximum vampire effect. After your cupcakes have cooled, decorate the top with a layer of white frosting. On the frosting, draw two line with red food coloring to look like bloody fang marks that will certainly spook your guests.

Need a bloodless cupcake? Try these Vampire Bat Cupcakes from Martha Stewart:

If none of these bring out the Ghoul in you be sure to stop by Wilton for 89 Halloween Creepy Cupcake Creations.

Haunt on!


  1. Here Here....I'm all for cupcakes, but that one with the blood in the middle would NOT get eaten by me...ha! Unless that blood is chocolate, it's a no go! Cute ideas there!

  2. Hey Wendy! I have to agree. It's not the "blood" that gets me but rather the cherries in the pie filling. What would those be? Clots? Ewwwwwww!

  3. Those brains are too much for me! I'm impressed and grossed out at the same time.

    I can't wait to get baking for Halloween!

  4. Hey Justine! The brains look a little gross but zombies seem to like them ;)

  5. These are awesome!

    I am trying to catch up on Blog visits this morning! I have missed reading your Blog!!


  6. And I've had serious withdrawals from not posting Lulu! I get grumpy when I don't get to blab about Halloween ;)
