Hump Day Snack: Creeptastic Zombie Cupcakes

By: Jamie Lisanti

Have you eaten your quota of fun-sized candy bars yet? While there's still plenty of time before October 31st, there's no harm in getting in the spook-tacular mood early with these Creeptastic Zombie Cupcakes. They're also ideal for a Walking Dead zombie party. The skulls, eyeballs and gooey brains that sit on top of the cupcakes start with a simple red velvet cake, broken down into crumbs and mixed with enough frosting to bind them together into cake eyeballs, brains and skulls. Dip them in white chocolate and go wild creating the brains and guts. Your friends won't believe their eye(ball)s!
