You can find all kinds of zombie cupcakes on Pintrest, and so many of them are fantastically done! That said, I’m not a huge fan of eating super gory looking food. I know it might just be jelly filling… but sometimes it just isn’t the most appetizing, you know? Instead, I wanted to try something that was still zombie themed but more fun and whimsical. While browsing at Micheal’s, I found the perfect candies to craft my cupcakes… Zombie Bites!

Zombie Bite Cupcakes

You will need:

  • White cake mix (plus required ingredients, usually egg whites, oil and water)
  • White frosting
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Purple and green sugar sprinkles
  • Zombie Bite gummies
  • frosting gun
  • green or white cupcake liners

Instructions

1. Pre-heat your oven. Mix the cake batter according to instructions. Add green food coloring until the batter is your desired hue.

2. Fill your green or white cupcake liners and bake according to packaging instructions. Keep an eye on it, as the tops will start to brown in the last few minutes. Allow cupcakes to fully cool.

3. Mix green food coloring into the white frosting until you have your desired hue. Load a frosting gun (get one, it will change your life!) and using a star tip, frost each cupcake.

4. Place a Zombie Bite gummy brain or eyeball on each cupcake. Top with green and purple sprinkles to give the frosting some sparkle and dimension.

See, zombie-themed foods can be light hearted too! These would be perfect for a kid’s zombie party, or for those of us who are just a little bit picky with our Halloween delicacies 😉

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • William Faulkner said to “it’s hard to kill your darlings” meaning it can be difficult to critique your own work, especially if you put a lot into it. Stephen King went on to say you should put your work away for six months to a year before editing so you can clearly evaluate. I’m really glad I looked back at this one. Even without the wig, I think it’s striking. #hauntmua #sfxmua #stevenkingismyhero #skullmakeup
  • I’m going through old pictures and ran across this one. I remember not really being happy with this look, and sure, the lines could have been cleaner, but I still really like this! I think we should always go back and look at work a year later... even if it really want good, it shows us just how far we have come in so little time. #skullmakeup #hauntmua #sfxmua #personalgrowth
  • I often do a look that I’m just not all that happy with afterwards, as is with this “halfway to Halloween” clown I created back in.... May? Looking at it now, I don’t know what it is exactly it was that I didn’t like... maybe I just needed a orange wig? I almost like a progress pic more than the finished product. What do you think?#clowns #clownmakeup
  • Throwback to my first actual clown makeup! The eye shapes were inspired by a few looks by @totalnightmaretravis, and i was incredibly excited about this wig! The Rhapsody Short by @rockstarwigs is probably the most fun wig to wear that I currently own. I only have red, but am heavily considering another color for my collection.
Happy National Clown Week! #justclowningaround #clowns #scaryclowns
  • Happy National Clown Week! A year ago, I wasn’t a big fan of clowns, but I practiced so many clown makeups that I eventually came to find them to be one of my favorites, and even created my own clown character. This is the first actual clown makeup I recreated based on @grave_digger_the_clown for last year’s haunt. Turned out a lot prettier than he is, no? 😉

  • One last look at this (insightful? Revealing?) makeup! I actually really loved the eyes by themselves, and they took a good 2 hours themselves. A good challenge in trying to make a flat art of round objects translated on a curved surface! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #eyes #makeupartist #inspiredbyart
Inspire by art by @xsullo
  • Eye see you! I also understand I’m not funny, it’s ok. 😂
This was actually a fun challenge, eyes are really complex and took nearly 2 hours to get them where I was happy. Of all of this, I’m really proud of the detail I was able to get in the irises of each eye, and my blocked eyebrow almost completely disappeared! This actually looks amazing compared to the first time I blocked them out. Yay for progress! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #horrormakeup #horrorart 
Inspired by art from @xsullo
  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
