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 ūüėČ

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!

  • I didn't want to say anything, then... or even now. But what someone else decided to do became a part of who I am now. A part of the damage I will always carry. My voice may have been small while I put myself together. Until I learned that the part of me that I am proudest of, the strength in me to overcome, is something you will never take. #metoo
  • Should have known #fridaythe13th would be the PERFECT day to start shooting my next project. You guys... I can't even begin to say how excited I am to share it with you, but for now, a quick peek.
  • Even in death, #pumpkinspice is life! Zombie walks are popping up all around the country, and if you want to wear your costume early as a "zombie" but don't want to actually damage the costume, this basic zombie is perfect! Or for me, it's a casual October Saturday....
  • Do you get to 3pm and feel like a total zombie without a caffeine jolt? Hey, me too! A playful take on the #basic girl, this is a tutorial that can give your costume zombie chic without the wounds and gore. Grab that #pumpkinspice latte and tackle those next few hours like the newly undead!
  • Brains... it's what's for dinner! Damir and I are at a place where he no longer questions brains in the fridge. #relationshipgoals #halloween #brains #brain #sfxmakeup #sfxmakeupartist
  • The easiest surgery recovery! If only I would bounce back from the real surgery as fast... instead of 6 weeks in a sling. This video shows just how easy these gel prosthetics are to remove, as opposed to spirit gum or pros-aid which require remover products.
  • After a year of having an injured shoulder, I am finally going to have surgery! For real... not this tutorial. But it IS inspired by my upcoming surgery, and the tutorial also contains a bit of a PSA on how you need to always keep fighting for your health and find a doctor who will fight with you. A MRI mistake lead to 9 months of additional pain, frustration, and medical costs. I'll get to spend this Halloween relaxing at home (in a sling) watching scary movies! Tutorial on the blog, link in bio!
  • Bruises are a great way to add interest to any Halloween costume, but I actually appreciate them for their behavior based on anatomy. They layers and shape you give your bruise are what can make you average injury go from "ouch" to "wow!" And just a slight change in these layers can show healing, or signs of deathly rot. I love making makeup bruises, mostly because I never recall how I get them in real life... I just run into things a lot apparently. The tutorial is on the blog, link in bio!
  • When you find the perfect coat in a consignment store to play Georgie from IT. But you know me, this coat would be ruined with sfx makeup and $50 was just a bit more than I wanted to spend. #cosplay #it #stephenking #halloweenmakeup #halloween #pennywise #georgie
