These creepy bloody cupcakes are stabbed with a knife and dripping with blood. A perfect dessert for your Halloween, Zombie, or Walking Dead party.
Halloween is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about parties and all the wonderful foods that can be served. If you want something fun, creepy, and delicious, these bloody cupcakes are sure to be a big hit.
Red Velvet Bloody Cupcakes
These cupcakes start with homemade red velvet cupcakes that are topped with cream cheese frosting and ooey gooey blood. Don’t worry, it’s just icing. The finishing touch is an edible knife decoration that it stabbed into the top of each cupcake. These cupcakes are pure Halloween perfection. Everyone is sure to love these cupcakes not only for their decorations but amazing flavor.
These cupcakes are not just great for Halloween parties – they are also the perfect dessert for Walking Dead parties or zombie themed parties. The best part is that you can make these cupcakes in advance and freeze them until the big day. Just thaw the cupcakes and then frost and decorate them. This will make party preparations so much easier.
Cupcake Display DIY
If you want an easy suggestion for displaying the cupcakes during the party, you will love this idea. Visit your local Dollar Tree and purchase a black plate, black saucer, and a glass candlestick holder. Give everything a good wash and allow to dry. Next glue the pieces together using E6000 with the plate on the bottom, candlestick holder in the middle, and saucer on top. It’s a quick, inexpensive cupcake stand that will work with almost any Halloween theme. You can also spray paint the candlestick holder to match the plates, if you want. You can then take things one step further by pouring Halloween colored M&M’s on the plate and saucer and nestling your cupcakes into the M&M’s.
Halloween doesn’t have to be store-bought. These homemade bloody cupcakes may require a bit of work, but they’ll taste better than anything from a grocery store bakery. In other words, these cupcakes are well worth the extra time!
