We’ve got two super simple Halloween cupcake ideas for you this week. First up, inspired by my recent Dexter binge, Crime Scene Cupcakes. These tiny candy knives are from Wilton and their blood red sparkle gel makes the perfect blood spatter patterns. Add some bloody bone candies and you’ve got a tasty crime scene that’s sure to make your guests gasp with shock and delight. Use your favorite white cake mix and icing or bake it all from scratch. That’s up to you, my dear. I went with a store bought mix because I was pressed for time.
Step one: Apply a generous squeeze of icing from a pastry bag.
Step two: Smooth icing with a knife.
Step three: Apply bloody accents.
Step four: Add knife and bloody bones.
That’s it! Fun, fast, and faBOOlous!
