Happy Halloween! Here are the macabre cupcakes that I baked for a Halloween party this weekend. I was definitely inspired by Miss Cakehead's Eat Your Heart Out evil cake shop when I made the 'Bad Apple' cakes! I visited yesterday and picked up some maggot cake from Ellie's Cakes and a gruesome eyeball on a stick from Molly Bakes mmmm.
The graveyard cakes above are red velvet with chocolate icing (sprinkled with cocoa to look like earth!) and topped with gingerbread tombstones. I got the recipe from the perfect Halloween cake book - A Zombie Ate My Cupcake by Lily Vanilli.
Mini pumpkin cupcakes with ginger fudge or cream cheese icing and cute bat and ghost sprinkles.
This is my 'Bad Apple' cake - ginger cake with a spiced apple centre (made by cutting a hole and filling with stewed apple) topped with chocolate icing, marzipan worms and maggots and a 'rotten' apple cake pop made with black candy melts.
Don't have nightmares!
